Teckentrup, Britta Run Home, Little Mouse Kids Can Press, 2013. $14.95 BOARD BOOK Content: G.
Little mouse is trying to get home, but he can’t remember the way. As he runs he sees eyes in the night which belong to predators who are watching him. The book will identify the predator and then say “run home little mouse”. The last page are eyes that belong to his family who have been waiting for him.
This book is really dark-the background is dark (it is night) and the eyes are yellow and a bit scary for little kids, especially with the idea that the animals are predators who would do the mouse harm. The book is cool because one page will show a hole with yellow eyes and then when you turn the page you can see how the eye matches to the animal. Overall effect is a bit scary for preschool kids, but it’s a cool idea.
