This is another favorite from my childhood and one that my mother and I read together frequently. A mouse has picked a nice red ripe strawberry and now has to hide it from a hungry bear who loves red ripe strawberries. The narrator tells the mouse that he could try to put a disguise on the strawberry or lock it up. But the best way to get rid of it is to cut it in two and to share half of it. The illustrations are colorful and fun; the mouse and the strawberry both wear matching Groucho Marx glasses. This is a must-have addition to any story time or bedtime but can also be a great tool in the classroom to teach the importance of sharing and helping those in a time of need. ( )

Narrating through making text connections with the mouse and bear.

The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear is a story I read one and over again as a child. It was my favorite. The most interesting part about this book is the fact that the narrator is not the mouse or the bear. The narrator is the person reading. The person reading talks ti the mouse when reading the words. The narrator even shares the strawberry with the mouse at the end. ( )
