Little Bitty Mousie by Jim Aylesworth
Little Bitty Mousie is an adorable "ABC" book that meets my first requirement for a great picture book - it is very fun to read aloud. The chorus, so to speak, throughout this book goes like this:
Tip-tip tippy tippy
Went her little mousie toes.
Sniff-sniff sniffy sniffy
Went her little mousie nose.
How can you not read that with a smile?
The illustration in this book, by Michael Hague, are also superb. Very vivid colors and a fine attention to detail. You want to reach out and bite into the apples on the first page!
I highly recommend this book for little ones in the preschool-to-kindergarten age range.
If anyone else has reviewed this book, leave a comment for me, and I'll edit this post to link to your review.
