Wee Reads: The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear

Ever since Finn was born, and even before then, we would read to him. We wanted to show him reading from an early age. Now he loves us to read the same books, over, and over, and over. But it is the sweetest thing, when he likes to pick out a book and climb into our laps. 

What Finn Reads....

The Little Mouse and the Big Hungry Bear are known and loved by millions of children around the world. Little Mouse loves strawberries, but so does the bear... How will Little Mouse stop the bear from eating his freshly picked, red, ripe strawberry.

What Finn Thinks...

Do you like this book?
Yeah! I like the mouse and the strawberry!

What's your favorite part of the book?
The mouse guarding the strawberry! And when he put the mustache on it, it was so silly! This book makes me feel like flatness. (As Finn planks...)

What do you think of the cover?
I like it because I like strawberries and mice and he is saying shhh!

Do you want me to read it again?

What Momma Thinks... 
This is a really cute book, about a mouse who finds a huge ripe strawberry. The mouse is afraid that the bear is going to find and steal his strawberry, so he decides he must eat it, in order to keep it safe.
