Mouse Was Mad
Author: Linda Urban
Illustrator: Henry Cole
You know I only post about books I enjoy – but man, do I enjoy Mouse Was Mad. This is a spectacular book from all kinds of angles. The text is adorable. It has a particularly lovely repetitive line that kids love to recite with you. The story is relatable for any human who has ever been steamin’ mad (so it’s for EVERYONE). The illustrations bring Mouse and his raging emotions to life. And the message that it’s OK to be mad and to figure out how you need to handle it is subtle and spot on!
Great for a classroom. Great for a home library. Just plain great.
