Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The mouse family is dressed in colonial American costumes for their parade and Fourth of July celebration. They enjoy a picnic lunch of cheese and sunflowers, play a game of baseball, run sack races and go swimming. Baby Mouse is afraid of the water but takes the plunge to save "Mr. Mouse," his stuffed animal who falls into the water. A delighted Baby Mouse discovers he can swim. That evening, they enjoy sparklers and fireworks. This new book in the holiday series about this joyous mouse family will be enjoyed by preschoolers. The text is simple enough for those beginning to read who are already familiar with the activities of this day. 2004, Clarion Books, Ages 3 to 6.
—Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-The same four little mice featured in other holiday books by this team are back to celebrate America's independence. The day is filled with traditional activities such as a parade, a picnic, baseball, swimming, waving sparklers, and watching fireworks. The rodents' enthusiasm and camaraderie are entertaining to follow and the rhyming text works well in the simple slice-of-life story. Clear, bright watercolors of the charming creatures fill the spreads and offer amusing details. A slight but pleasant tale about the rituals customarily observed in honoring an important day.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
