Name of Book: The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, And The Big Hungry Bear
Author / Illustrator: Written by Don and Audrey Wood and Illustrated by Don Wood
What It's All About: A little mouse finds a strawberry. The narrator warns the little mouse that there's a big hungry bear out there who will fill find the strawberry no matter where the mouse hides it or how the mouse guards it. The only way to be really sure about keeping a strawberry safe is to cut it in half and share it with me (the narrator).
My Favorite Bit: I think I like the simplicity of the wording in this story and the bright vibrant colors of the pictures. They are large and colorful and really cute. We love the page especially where the mouse tries to disguise the strawberry.

Suitable Age For Reading It To: This is a nice bedtime story as it is simple, short, and the wording is easy. My littlest loves this best though my son sneaks in for a listen, so I'd say it's for anyone but little ones will probably love it best.
