When Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond introduced the world to the Mouse in If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, kids’ literature was never to be the same again. In one little book the duo showed other authors and illustrators that children were capable of learning from silliness, and that parents could enjoy reading stories with their children instead of thinking it a chore. Since the creation of the mouse over fifteen years ago, the pair has written a number of follow-up books, some of which include the famous mouse, and some of which do not.
One thing that many parents enjoy doing is reading stories to their children that focus on the holidays. Children’s books that focus on specific holidays can be a great gift to give during that holiday or even right before it. The Happy Easter, Mouse! book is a book from the great duo of Numeroff and Bond which introduces the mouse that everyone fell in love with to the idea of Easter!
This time around the lovable rodent is trying to figure out what happened in his house. When he wakes up he sees all sorts of eggs all around his house and he’s not quite sure who put them there or what their purpose is. Children follow along as mouse finds the eggs and tries to figure out, ultimate, who put the eggs in his house! In Happy Easter, Mouse!, children can have a great deal of fun finding all of the eggs on the pages and helping the title character to figure out what is going on in his house.
This board book is designed for younger ones, but kids who are early readers will also enjoy being able to spend some time helping mouse to figure out about his Easter visitor! If you’re searching for a story that will help children to understand some of the basic concepts of this spring holiday, Happy Easter, Mouse! is a book that is ideal for showing younger ones what the colorful eggs that are all around the house are all about in a fun way with one of their favorite characters!
