Snow! Cookies! Candy! Mouse loves snow days. When he’s accidentally swept out the door and into the snow, Mouse has a blast ice-skating, sledding, and building snow animals—always just one step ahead of sly Cat. But above Mouse on a wire sit three cold birds who warn Mouse of Cat’s approach. Now it is Mouse’s turn to do something nice for his new friends.
Yum! Yum! A delicious smell wakes up Mouse on the fifth of May!
He follows his nose down the street to a Cinco de Mayo festival. High up in a tree he spies a piñata magnifica. If only Mouse could get just one piece of candy from it. But look out! Cat is on the prowl. He is planning a fiesta of his own, and Mouse is on the menu.
Sprinkled with a few words in Spanish, this Cinco de Mayo adventure is a great read-alound for pre-school and kindergartners interested in other cultures or in sharing their own. The art is appealing and kid-friendly and filled with energy.
This warm and humourous picture book gently reminds us to give thanks for the little things.
The Thanksgiving feast is over. Leftover turkey and pumpkin pie litter the table. Mouse peeps out of his hidey-hole and spots a small green pea. the perfect feast for one mouse. Yes, one green pea, one red cranberry, one plate of mashed potatoes, and one roasted turkey, that should make a very fine feast for Mouse.
But can he get it all back to his hidey-hole?
