Tap and tumble ’round the houseChase a busy buzzy fly
Creap and leap and reach up high...

Baby Mouse’s curiosity lets him discover all sorts of things—but it has also led him away from his parents. Lost in a large house, this itsy-bitsy baby mouse seeks to find something familiar that could lead him home. How will he find his way? Michelle Meadows and Matthew Cordell pair up to make a path for Itsy-Bitsy Baby Mouse—and young readers—to joyfully follow.

My Thoughts:

This is the fourth book I have read by Michelle Meadows, and am impressed yet again with her writing style. With rhyming text and simple, yet appealing illustrations, young children will enjoy this book abut a lost mouse, who is looking for his way home.  As you flip through each page, you feel like you are following along on his journey to find the door to his home.  He runs into a cat, bugs, and other creatures along the way.  Does he finally find his Mom and Dad?  You'll have to read the book to find out. :-)

Disclosure I was sent a copy of this book by the author in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
