Imagine taking a small mouse to school with you! It's a concept that could be developed to create havoc, but instead this small pink-nosed, pink-eared, whiskered creature moves cheerfully through all the activities of a school day in a delightfully reassuring fashion. Felicia Bond's colorful illustration are full of fascinating detail, through which the eye hunts to quickly identify boy and mouse on each busy page.

It begins 'If you take a mouse to school, he'll ask you for your lunchbox' and moves on to math, spelling (words like 'versimilitude' - this mouse is a spelling whiz), science, lunch, writing, ball games, and so on to end with 'if he asks you for your lunchbox, you'll have to take him back to school.' If You Take a Mouse to School is a great choice for kids who need just a little extra confidence to conquer those back to school blues.
Note: There is also a Spanish version, Si llevas un raton a la escuela.
