The Mouse Who Reached the Sky
Candlewick, 2016 (2016)
Reviewed by Bob Walch
oungsters two years of age and older will enjoy following the adventures of this little mouse and his friends as they try to snatch a red object resting high up in a tree. Each animal has his/her own idea of what he/she is looking at. Is it a red marble, a ball or a balloon?
he trick is to figure out a way of reaching the object. Finally the friends join forces and when they reach the object they will be in for a big surprise. I'll let you discover what the red object really is!
his is a cute story with attractive illustrations. There are holes to peek through and an occasional flap to flip open, so this calls for a little interaction with the narrative. The author also stresses the importance of cooperation and sharing too, which is a good message that can't be repeated too often for toddlers.
