Description

As Busy Little Mouse hurries outside for the day, he meets a pig, sheep, cow, cat, duck and horse. As his playmates are introduced, they each have something to say --- like oink, baa, moo, meow, quack and neigh!

The rhyming text and three-dimensional artwork invite children into a world of color, movement and fun. Busy Little Mouse is sure to become a favorite read-aloud at the end of any busy day.

Editorial Review

Eugenie Fernandes' rhyming text is bright and appealing. Kim Fernandes' intricate three-dimensional Fimo illustrations are full of life and movement. They also enrich the story with charming visual repetition. This book should prove to be a popular read-aloud story and a hit with its young audience.

Busy Little Mouse

What do all the barnyard animals have to say? Woof, oink, baa, moo, meow, quack and neigh, of course! Toddlers will delight in the simple rhyming text and three-dimensional artwork. Originally published as a hardcover in 2002 (Our Choice 2003 Starred Selection).
