Mama Mouse is running as fast as her little legs can carry her, while holding onto her two frightened babies, an armful of cherished heirlooms, and a basketful of food! The old abandoned farmhouse is being demolished, forcing the little mice family to leave their cozy home and to run for their lives! What is Mama to do? Where will she find shelter for her family? Nighttime arrives as Mama, tired and scared, calls out to the vast heavens above for help and guidance… and WOW... does she get answers!
Her cries for help bring about a couple of strange occurrences that Mama quickly recognizes as “opportunities” to help her family in the midst of their crisis. With her babies in hiding and sleeping the night away, she instantly rolls up her sleeves and gets to work!
The combination of beautiful illustrations and eloquent poetry creates an inspirational bedtime story of how even the tiniest of animals on earth are connected to the stars, the moon, and the universe. An ideal book for teaching little ones of how hopes and dreams can be realized, not by just wishing, but by taking action and doing good things toward achieving your desires, along with a little gratitude for what you already have.

About the Author
Leea Baltes is an award-winning author & illustrator of children's books that are beautifully illustrated in soft watercolors that reflect her love and appreciation of Beatrix Potter. Each inspirational story is subtly woven around a positive and encouraging message instilling hope, gratitude and wholesome values into the minds and hearts of little ones. Her desire is not only to provide the child with an entertaining story, but to offer the idea of how they, too, can feel connected to the magical and beautiful universe around them.
Leea has a passion for all things magical and creative! Her artistic ability began at a young age and is still evident today not only in her children's stories and illustrations, but with her award-winning fine art paintings, photography, and costume designs. Her 3d miniature creations consist of things like ballerina dresses with tiny sculptured ballet slippers, party dresses with little matching hats, and a stone fairy house with whimsical furniture made from cinnamon sticks and moss. Just like Tinkerbell... Leea can take any found item and use it to fix something... or turn it into a treasure! Her original works of art can be viewed online at Fine Art America and at EBSQ Self Representing Artists, where she is a Juried Member.
