Little Mouse's Painting based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Little Mouse's Painting has been a big hit in our house - read at least once a day and sometimes more. Little Mouse and his friends discover that not everyone sees things the same way and that different perspectives will give different impressions. The illustrations are beautiful and are works of art on each page. I wish this version was still in print so I could add it to our home library. If your library carries it - you will not regret checking it out.
My favorite character is Bear because he has a dark voice and he likes to eat berries.
