Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–As in the other books in the series, Thompson and Erdogan again draw readers into the joys of a simple frolic. Done in jewel-toned acrylics, the double-page paintings create a sumptuous backdrop for this sensory-rich adventure as Mouse and Minka go on a picnic and sample watermelon, roll in the grass, fly a kite, spill lemonade, and feast on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The poetic, spare text dabbles in alliteration, describing "Marching, munching, bold, black ants..." and "Tipsy-tumbly, tickly, green grass." A final proclamation–"Hooray for summer!"–tops off this delicious taste of the season for young listeners.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

Format: Hardcover
I bought this cute book after seeing the great, vivid pictures in it. When I got home, we read this book to our baby to be and my husband loved it. It has a sing songy, repetition to it that will be great for our baby as he gets older. I definitely was pleased and I am excited to collect the rest of the Mouse books from this author.

Not as good in some ways as the other books by this author but still a favorite for preschoolers and kindergarten age or earlier.
