Little Mouse is the perfect book for a young child, and I’m grateful to one of our patrons for telling me that her two year old loves it. The simple story is child centered. Mommy sometimes calls the girl little mouse, but the child knows she is more than her nickname.
Young children will love pointing out the featured animals. Murray’s illustrations are clean and simple with just a few small details that children will be drawn to which give a parent and child the opportunity to talk. You might ask, “Did you find the little mouse?” Off white pages and soft colors create a feeling of comfort and love.
A lot of books come through the library each day, and a few stand out as keepers. Little Mouse fits the bill .
