Red House, Tree House, Little Bitty Brown Mouse

Dial. Aug. 2019. 40p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9780525553816.
Toddler-PreS–On the title page, a little mouse packs her suitcase and then she’s off! She travels around the world through busy, colorful spreads until she arrives—back home! The text offers multiple opportunities for reader interaction: counting, identifying colors, answering questions, and of course, finding the mouse on every page. The majority of the rhyming lines scan well. If a few feel a bit short, young readers will most likely not notice—they will be too busy scanning the illustrations, naming objects, and looking for the little mouse. Once the book has been read a few times and the mouse found, flip to the end pages for a new game. Match the patches on the endpapers with the related story images throughout the book.
VERDICT A fun concept book for the very young with a seek-and-find element for slightly older, more savvy readers
