In a bouncy, rhyming text, full of fun sounds, four little mice skip, hop, swoosh, and plop their way through snow and ice. They deliver valentines to all their forest friends, cheerily tossing paper hearts here, there, and everywhere. But suddenly they realize the littlest mouse is missing- and the search is on! At last they find him in the snow and tug him out. In a perfect valentine ending, he gets a happy, holiday hug. The colorful illustrations are charming, and include lots of woodland animals for children to identify. A fun read-aloud, this book is also simple enough for beginning readers, and would make a sweet gift for young Valentine's Day celebrants.

Though in print this may be a charming kids book, on a e-reader it is a jumbled, ill formated mess! Do not waste your money! The pages are scanned in badly, text us typed twice, it becomes confused and hard to follow. My five year old was completely lost.
