    1. This was my favorite book before I could read. I had my mother read it to me every night, and I could not wait until I was able to read it myself, which I did by the time I was 4. I have always jokingly said that Pokey Turtle and Tweeter Bird were my inspiration for joining a commune when I was in my 20s, and of course like them I eventually went away from the commune to find the "very best home for me".I thought it was sad that the group had to go its separate ways over FOOD. They were such goo [...]

    2. This has those nice familiar Garth Williams illustrations. It is such a weird book. These old storybooks make me wonder if the standard sell was easier for children's books back in the 50s. Who would think of a plot like this--a bunch of animals live in the same house and get along except for the food they eat, so they have to all find new homes. Very thin, and a strange moral message. My daughter, of course, loves it. So I think maybe it is just comforting in a nonsensical and non-confrontation [...]

    3. This little golden book is about finding the best home for the seven animals that share a small home in the woods. They are happy most of the time living together. However, they aren't always happy with the food that the others fix.One day they decide to find another home that will fit each of them perfectly. Even though they loved each other so much it was the time in their lives that they had to branch out from the family and do what was best for them. It was like Squirrel was their mom of all [...]

    4. It doesn't say anywhere that this is a retelling of a Hans Christian Anderson story. And the message seems pretty anti-diveristy if you put it into today's context. It's not a bad story, just boring and not current.

    5. We own this book but will not for long, it is destined for the give-away pile. The premise is that all the animals get along great except for meals and instead of working through the problem they all just move. Not sure what the point is

    6. This book has way cute illustrations and has the different species of housemates go their own ways to find homes more appropriate and comfortable to suit their individual lifestyles amicably. Some of the wording is awkward and Conrad isn't wowed by it, but it is a solid Little Golden Book.

    7. A tale of some little animals who find their ideal homes, but it seems to me like a pro-segregation lesson in disguise. Gotta watch out for those tricky vintage stories (published 1953).

    8. This is actually a reissue. I read this as a child. I don't remember the story, but I sure remember the pictures -- and I hated the squirrel then, too. My son loved this

    9. One of my favorite books as a kid. The illustrations are so cozy and warm that they have staid with me through the years.
