An imaginative and restless mouse wonders about places to sleep in this soft, darling picture book from Mary Morgan.
Little Mouse usually sleeps peacefully in his grass bed, with soothing bedtime wishes from Mama and a goodnight kiss. But when he has trouble one night, he wonders if he might sleep better with other animals, such as in a bird's nest "Up high in the trees with a breeze to rock me to sleep," with a family of bats "All stretched out straight from my toes to my nose," or even in a kangaroo's pouch so that "[w]herever we'd roam, I'd still be at home." Thinking again, Little Mouse realizes that none of his options would work out, and eventually, the tuckered critter gets "too sleepy to think anymore. I will think of somewhere else to sleep tomorrow."
A smaller-sized book that will rest perfectly on any child's nightstand, Morgan's sweet read reminds that there's no place like home. The author's dreamy illustrations of Little Mouse asleep with other animals will tug at the heartstrings and teach how other animals snooze, and by the soothing end, little ones will be curled up snugly, like a mouse close to its mama.
