Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
decorated cards to woodland pals. Roberts's simple, somewhat choppy text introduces beginning readers to basic words and rhyming sounds as the four mice, bundled up against the cold, make their rounds: "One to the rabbit, two for the squirrels, three for the chipmunks. Zip! Nip!" After tossing the remaining Valentines into the air ("Shower valentines! THROW! THROW! THROW!"), three seemingly punchy mice make a sobering discovery: the fourth has disappeared. Cushman's motion-filled, festive watercolors humorously document the rescue of the missing mouse, who has become buried in snow. The artist realizes a welcome balance of the real and the whimsical, giving preschoolers the chance to identify various animal species while enjoying such lighthearted images as a moose with a Valentine tucked into its antlers. A spirited if slight holiday caper. Ages 3-6. (Jan.)
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Four lively mice enthusiastically deliver their Valentine cards and bring good cheer to all the animals in the snowy forest. They shower Valentines all over the place until the littlest mouse goes missing while they are on the trail. After hunting and calling for a short while, they spot a mitten in the snow and dig their companion out. Everyone gives him a Valentine hug. The text is short, simple, and a comfortable size on the page, making it a good beginning reader.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Four bustling mice deliver Valentine's Day cards to animals living in a snowy forest. The rhyming text is cheerful and moves along quickly: "More to deliver. Cross the pond./Slide. Glide. Slip! Flip!" The smallest mouse is temporarily buried in snow, causing the only moment of anxiety in the story. Will the others find him? Can they pull him out? Not to worry. This holiday devoted to love would not be complete without a group hug to make the cold little creature feel better. The bright watercolor cartoons add to the sense of fun. The pleased expressions of the creatures receiving the cards are charming. A curious note: the mice are dressed in winter clothes complete with hats and mittens, but the other animals have only their natural fur. A fun offering, though not a must-have.Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-It's Valentine's Day and four spirited mice deliver valentines to the other animals. But wait, one mouse is missing! The other three find him in a snowdrift and everyone is safe and happy at story's end. This sweet offering written by Bethany Roberts and illustrated by Doug Cushman (Clarion, 1997) uses simple, repetitive vocabulary. A soothing-voiced female narrator reads the story slowly enough for children to easily follow along in the book. Upbeat music complements the words and colorful watercolor illustrations. The sound of a kiss is the page-turn signal. At the end, the narrator explains how to flip the cassette to read the story without the page-turn prompts. Very young children will find this a warm, fuzzy, non-threatening, interactive introduction to reading.-Marilyn Hersh, Hillside Elementary School, Farmington Hills, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
From The Critics
"The stars of Halloween Mice! are back, but this time they’re celebrating a different holiday. Four lively mice scamper through a snowy landscape, delivering valentines to all the woodland creatures, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, badgers, beavers, and more. . . . Simple rhythmic text and action-packed line and watercolor illustrations will draw young readers in: Cushman includes welcome details—such as a tag- along chickadee—that enhance the story, and mixes full-bleed and framed illustrations to emphasize high points in the text."

Kirkus Reviews

This holiday devoted to love would not be complete without a group hug to make the cold little creature feel better. The bright watercolor cartoons add to the sense of fun.
