Mice

Submitted by Ms. Melissa!
Mice, a quirky poem by Rose Fyleman, tells the tale of two nice mice.    The poem, though simple, can be extended by asking children to explain what’s happening on each page. Certain images have a word next to them, which may be helpful for those children learning language. Lois Ehlert’s clever scrapbook-esque illustrations are easy for children to duplicate, and can be made out of basic shapes of paper. At the end of the poem, you’ll discover that it is being narrated by a cat, which may incite a giggle or two. Check out these Lois Ehlert inspired arts and crafts on pinterest or see this book listed in our catalog
