Description

"From wet to dry, messy to neat" learning opposites has never been so much fun! Little Mouse's birthday is coming up, and she has one week to get the house ready for her party. With help from her mother she cleans and bakes and decorates -- and before she knows it the big day is here! The talented mother and daughter team of Eugenie and Kim Fernandes draw children into a delightful world of color and activity. Eugenie's lyrical rhymes feature 14 pairs of opposites clearly illustrated in Kim's enchanting three-dimensional art.

Editorial Review

Children will enjoy supplying the opposite words as well as building their repertoire of rhymes in this book, which is a superb choice for reading aloud. The contrasting fonts will reinforce the concepts for individual readers. Either way, Big Week for Little Mouse manages to entertain and instruct - always a winning combination.
