Around the House the Fox Chased the Mouse by Rick Walton

Prepositions are probably not your favorite kind of words and I bet they’re not your child’s favorites either. But they can be! Around the House the Fox Chased the Mouse is a language adventure book, which means you and your child get to have fun while exploring the words that are so important to our language; in this case: prepositions.

This book is full of simple text, with big, bright pictures that perfectly illustrate what’s happening in the text.

Follow the fox as he chases the mouse into the barn, through windows, and under tractors. What will happen when the fox catches the mouse? That’s the mystery! And the twist at the end is charming enough to make any adult laugh right along with their kids.

If you enjoy exploring prepositions through this fun and colorful book, try If You Were A Preposition by Nancy Loewen. Or explore some adjectives with Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What is an Adjective? By Brian Cleary. These books and many more are available through the Virginia Beach Public Library.
