Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Leggett
One cool fall day, Mouse learns about fall. Earlier Mouse books have celebrated summer, spring, Christmas, snow, Halloween, Valentine's Day, and the first day of school. In the same spirit of finding joy and adventure in everyday experiences, Mouse and Minka discover the colors, shapes, and sounds of fall. Every page is filled with the warm, rich paintings of Buket Erdogan. New readers and pre-readers will be able to see the connections between the illustrations and words like round, skinny, pointy leaves, or leaves in which Mouse "ran and skipped and kicked and swished." Perfect for a read-aloud in class at home following by a walk in the woods!
School Library Journal
PreS-Another entry in a sweet series. It is autumn and Mouse, accompanied by Minka, a larger rodent wearing a pink jacket, go out to play. As they enjoy the day, Mouse learns about leaves, their colors and shapes, and the fun that comes from piling them up and jumping in them. When Minka hides in the heap, Mouse is confused, but readers will quickly see her tail curling above the fallen foliage. Bright hues evoke the season and realistically show the leaves in all their variety. Swirling brushstrokes and texture add interest to the paintings. Each spread has one or two simple sentences, and additional comments ("Pretty!" "Yippee!" "Whee!") are spread throughout to add to the fun. This is a pleasant read-aloud for introducing autumn, and it will certainly be enjoyed where the other titles are popular.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
