Snow Day for Mouse by Judy Cox
Mouse is on his 4th book adventure in this darling Snow Day for Mouse book! Judy Cox shares Mouse's adventure as the humans in his house celebrate a snow day off from school. Mouse with his tiny little glasses, and need for adventure, is excited about all of the festivities in the house. Making cookies, mouse goes after a gumdrop that falls to the floor. Cat sees him, and comes out for the attack just as the broom whisks mouse outside into the snow! He ignores the cat and takes some time to ice skate on a mouse sized pond, slide on a leaf sized toboggan, and even make a snow mouse. All the while, looking for that pesky gumdrop he lost.
Mouse made a few bird friends out on his adventure, and his heart feels for them out in the cold, once he is back in the warm house. Even mice can make sacrifices for friends!
Super cute book with a theme of caring for others! Great book to pull out on your first snow day of the year, and you can even download an activity guide to go with Snow Day for Mouse
