Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
It's a rainy night, and granny is snoring on her bed. A sleepy boy plops on top of her, then a dog crawls up and dozes off on top of him. Next, a cat leaps up and settles for a snooze, and a teeny mouse jumps to the tippy top of the slumbering pile. All sleep happily, until a wakeful flea bites the mouse...ouch!!! Wood uses gradual changes in color and perspective, and her gleeful cumulative tale ends in sunshine and play.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Gorgeous double page pastel pictures with a mouse whose facial expressions will delight young readers have kept this book in print for years. Easy to read text tells the story of a little mouse who will do anything to save his strawberry from the big hungry bear. Don Wood is a previous Caldecott award winning illustrator.

    A must read for kids

    Tells little kids to protect what is theirs from anyone, no matter how big and strong. Also, the book lets the reader decide outcomes.

    Teaches Manipulation to get what you want

    I was very disappointed in this book and will not read it to my daughter again. Although the narrator seems to be protecting the mouse, the end result of the mouse sharing the strawberry seems to indicate that no such bear ever existed. The goal of the story is to get the mouse to give up its prized strawberry to the narrator, so the narrator lies about the bear to get what he wants. This book teaches children that it is ok to lie and manipulate to get what you want and those are not values we intent to teach our children.

    Great book-bad shipping

    The book is great for doing sign language with preschool aged kids. However when I ordered it in store to have sent to my house, I was told it would arrive within 3 days and I didn't get it for a week and a half.

    Great book

    I read this story to my son (now 7) many times from when he was a baby. Now I'm reading it to my 3 year old daughter. I was asked to bring a favorite kid's book to a baby shower and this was the first book I thought of. It's just a fun book to read and fun for the kids, too.

    An amazing book!

    My younger brother and I have read this book over and over again as children (I am now 17) and to find it again and order it for my 3 year old brother and 1 year old sister is just fantastic! It will never leave your kids heads! They will carry it around with them for life, bringing it up randomly, "Do you remember that book with the little mouse and his yummy strawberry?" Just a great book! You'll read it over and over again! =]

    I Also Recommend:

    A classic tale for the youngest of readers!!!

    This was one of my children's favorites,so when giving a gift to expectant parents, this book is first on my list. There are very few words but the beautiful pictures tell the story and are sure to keep the attention of even the smallest child or impatient reader. The story line leaves plenty of room for discussion and interaction and the clever little mouse will help you engage your child in topics such as fear, sharing, and friendship. I first bought this book through Discovery Toys years ago for my older two children but was thrilled to find it in board book form about eight years later when our little caboose Aimee came along. It also comes in jumbo book size for a classroom of young preschoolers. I highly recommend this book to parents and preschool terachers alike!
