Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-One night before bedtime, Little Mouse just cannot relax, so he tells his mother that he would like to try sleeping the way other baby animals do: maybe in a bird's nest, or with puppies, or in a kangaroo's pouch, etc. As she subtly discourages his ideas, he realizes that he does not like worms or wearing a collar, and would definitely not appreciate being bounced around. But mostly, he would miss his mother, if he stayed all winter with the polar bears. Large illustrations across spreads beautifully depict Little Mouse's ideas for his new sleeping arrangements: under a full moon that lights up the birds' midnight-blue sky, surrounded by puppies in warm hues of brown and gold, pressed against winter white polar bears, his mouse doll ever in tow. Little ones will enjoy hearing this story as a gentle nap or bedtime tale or as a delightful introduction to animals and their babies.

From Booklist

PreS. Cozy is the word for this satisfying little book. Mama Mouse tucks her tiny field mouse into his soft, grassy bed for the night, but he can't fall asleep. Instead, he comes up with a series of alternative places where he wishes he could sleep: in a bird's nest, with a pile of puppies, in a kangaroo's pouch. Each place is initially appealing but, upon further thought, seems problematic in one way or another. Finally, too tired to think any more, he falls asleep. The concept isn't particularly original; however, the simple, pleasing text with its occasional internal rhyme reads aloud well and deftly avoids the cloying sweetness that has been overtaking the bedtime-book market lately. Rounded forms and soft, tawny colors define the ink-and-watercolor artwork. An appealing and suitably soporific choice for bedtime reading. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
A little mouse in a grass nest is very restless and can't get to sleep. He imagines he is a bat hanging in a cave, an otter floating on a pond, a polar bear in a cave, ect. With each animal there is a wonderful illustration with the little mouse sleeping with that animal family. Very nice. And with each animal family the little mouse decides that it wont work for him. His feet would get tired, if he had to hang upside down like a bat, He would get lonely and miss his family if he was a polar bear sleeping all winter. The book ends with the little mouse falling asleep in his grass nest with his mother by his side.

I love sharing this book with my three year old son. He loves seeing all the different animals on the pages and finding Little Mouse in each scene. Images of Mommies and their babies make him happy. He chooses this as his bed time book several times a week. I highly recommend this for yourself or as a gift.
