Tiny mouse loves changes in the weather. She likes to nibble wheat in the sunshine, watch wind blow crackly leaves, and hop across the crunchy frost on a cold night.

When it snows, the little mouse loves it when the snowflakes tickle her nose. What she doesn't really care for, though, is wet weather. If it rains, the little mouse runs for her hole and hides. But even the rain has an upside. After the showers pass a lovely rainbow appears and that is always something the little mouse enjoys looking at.

This board book for youngsters up to three years of age features a wheel on the final pages that, when turned, brings the colorful rainbow into sight. With its colorful illustrations, this little book will not only heighten awareness of the various changes in weather but the wheel will also stimulate coordination.

Petr Horacek's picture books are very appealing to toddlers and this one is no exception. A Surprise for Tiny Mouse will quickly become one of your child's favorite books at story time.
