The characters are all drawn cute as can be, and you can tell from the expression on the cat's face in the photo above, that the little one's there might want to be on high alert!
The book is very well-written and the storyline is easy for even the littlest of readers to follow along with too. It was a pleasure to read, and I'm oh so happy to have it in our little library, for when my grandbaby or the other tiny sweethearts in the family come to visit.
This is a nice-sized hard cover book, approximately 10" x 10". I love that it's a bit larger than the norm because that means bigger pictures...and this book has very cute pictures! You can purchase it on Amazon.
Mousey was watching a baby bird when it fell from its nest. The baby bird is okay, but she can’t fly yet! So how will she get back up the tree to safety? Mousey may be too small to get the baby bird back up by himself, but maybe he can find somebody else who can! Maybe a frog can jump high enough. Or maybe a bunny can hop far enough. Maybe a snail will be able to crawl his way up the tree . . .
Will Mousey be able to save the baby bird? Or will the hungry cat get in the way of Mousey’s valiant attempts? Sometimes it’s just the size of your heart that really counts.
