What’s the Story?

The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don and Audrey Wood is a clever and suspenseful story with beautiful and humorous illustrations that are sure to delight.

 

Little Mouse loves strawberries, but so does the Big Hungry Bear… How will Mouse stop the bear from eating his freshly picked, red, ripe strawberry?

Why is it Great?

The narrator (who may just be strawberry-loving bear) speaks directly to the mouse in the story, allowing the reader to interact with the mouse in a fun way.

 

Don Wood’s artwork is beautiful, creative, and humorous. The narrator says just enough and these wonderful illustrations show the rest, adding a depth most picture books lack. Will little Mouse save his strawberry? Or will the Big Hungry Bear get it all to himself?
