I liked this book for three main reasons. First, I liked how there are many rhyming words that are located throughout the story. I especially loved how the author made those rhyming words in a variety of colorful print to make those words stand out to the reader. For example, there are rhyming words located throughout the story in colorful print, such as glittery and flittery, fluttery and buttery, hidey and insidey, dip and flip, along with many other rhyming words. Second, I liked how the author in the story was extremely descriptive. For example, the author using words to describe what’s going on throughout the story with descriptive words, such as windy, feathery, plump, peeping, along with many other descriptive words. Third, I liked how the author asked the characters and reader throughout the story a variety of questions, such as “What can it be?”. It repeats that question throughout the story, which would be a delightful book for shared reading. The big idea of this story is about different things that happen throughout time when it turns to the season spring. ( )

This would be a good book for k-2. There are a lot of adjectives and verbs that might be knew words to younger children, so I think it's a good book to see examples of how to describe things. Every page repeats the same line, and the mouse just comes across a new animal. It isn't very exciting, but younger kids might like the predictability and the rhythm of the book.

This is a book about a young mouse who is finally being allowed to see what the world is like outside of their home. She and her Momma go on an adventure in the world and Mouse learns about a lot of new animals that she has never seen before. She is very happy to be spending time with her Momma in the new environment that she is in. These illustrations are very cute and fun to look at. Students will be attached to the pictures pretty quickly due to all of the creatures that are found throughout the story-line. When Mouse and Momma encounter these new animals, Mouse become very happy and the pictures really show the joy that is brought to her life. Something to bring up about this book is the words that are used, they are simple sentences, but the words kind of seem made up on a few pages. A couple examples of these words or phrases would be, “hidey insidey” or “flittery”, these are a little distracting to the reader, but may be able to grab the attention of the children listening (Thompson, p. 8 & 3). Something to take away from this book is what spring can mean for animals, and which animals are out during the springtime more so than any other time. Some children may not know what kind of animals, or insects, come out in the spring so this is a great way to teach that lesson about animals. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689858388, Hardcover)

One bright day, Mouse and Momma head outside to play.

The wind blows in something

feathery and plump --

a bird,

and something

wiggly and pink --

a worm,

and something

green, who hops and leaps --

a frog.

But before it's time to go back inside, Mouse finds something that's

soft and new with petals...

the prettiest flower he's ever seen!

Could it mean spring is finally here?
