Book Review: The Mother's Day Mice

The Mother's Day Mice In the UK Mother's Day falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, so I bought The Mother's Day Mice by Eve Bunting to share with Little Cherub. It is illustrated by Jan Brett, which is a guarantee that it will be good to look at. The story is cute and simple: three mice go in search of presents for their mother for Mother's Day. The littlest mouse is prevented from getting the honeysuckle he wants by a cat, but thinks of something extra special instead. A nice gentle story for preschoolers. I particularly like the way the three little mouse brothers are willing to share credit for their gifts.

This is a family favorite -- from the days when my three oldest sons were little boys. I could have read it to them every day!

Thanks for the memory.
