#blogbookaday: Little Mouse’s Big Breakfast

8 May

Little Mouse's Big BreakfastSummary:  “Hungry Little Mouse is looking for some breakfast and he knows just where he can find it. Scampering into the kitchen, he finds a bright blue blueberry – that will do nicely! But hold on a minute, just before he leaves, he spots a rosy red apple! Little Mouse loves rosy red apples! And as if that’s not enough, then he finds big brown biscuits, a chunk of cheese, a plump pickle …the list goes on and on! Delicious! But as he finally finds something that’s just perfect, Little Mouse quickly discovers he’s not the only one looking for breakfast!” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Mouse is so hungry, he travels far and wide to a kitchen where he finds the perfect breakfast – a bright, blue blueberry, then an apple and with a nod to The Very Hungry Caterpillar  he gathers up more and more food, until he finds a sunflower seed. Then he comes across someone else looking for breakfast and must run away as fast as he can with his sunflower seed, back to his home where he’s safe. I loved the illustrations with watercolor and colored pencils. I love how tiny the little mouse is compared to all the food he tries to carry home.

Personal Reaction: My personal caveat to this book is that I’ve just spent the better part of a month humanely trapping and releasing mice that had taken up residence in my house! That being said, this is an adorable story of a mouse whose eyes are bigger than his stomach, until someone else wants breakfast too! This would make a great read aloud for storytime about food, breakfast, mice or just a fun read aloud with your family!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
