On a regular basis I call my 3-year-old nephew “Big dog.” He’s not much of a fan of this nickname and always replies “I’m not a big dog, I’m Jacob.”
The gorgeous character in today’s picture book has a similar problem, although hers is less of a literal issue and more of a limitation objection.
She goes on to outline her non-mouse like attributes, which are paired with delightful illustrations of appropriate animals. There are fabulous animal noises just waiting to be read aloud, and lovely words likes “zoom” “stomp” and “splash” for you to play with.
Highly recommended for reading aloud to a pre-school audience. Have fun!
