While peering out of her hole, Little Mouse saw the moon.“The moon is beautiful” she said and wished
she had her very own piece of the moon.
Upon awaking the next
morning, she found what she thinks is part of the moon lying outside her hole.Her wish had come true, and the moon smelled
delicious!Little Mouse couldn’t resist
taking a nibble, and then another until half of it was gone.
In this sweet, feel-good
story we follow Little Mouse throughout the day as each of her friends reassure
her that “Nobody can eat the moon.”Little Mouse, a bit reminiscent of Frank Asch’s character, Moon Bear, is
innocent and adorable in her striped knitted socks, gloves and tail warmer.
Not only are the pictures
beautiful with their bold colors and lines, but the die-cut shapes and
silhouettes give a wonderful dimension to the story.
Reading The Mouse Who Ate the Moon with children is a sure way to instill a love of reading books.Little Mouse is lovable and children would be
able to relate to her dilemma.Children
would also enjoy peeking through the cut out shapes just as Little Mouse does.
