A bit Each Peach Pear Plum, a bit Go, Dog, Go, this read-aloud joy is deceptively simple yet packed with delights for the very young—a preschool standout deserving of modern-classic status.
A little mouse makes her way around the world, and invites preschoolers along as she sets out: Red house / Blue house / Green house / Tree house / See the tiny mouse in her little brown house? Seamless, simple, and inspiring, the rhyming story abounds in concepts for the very young, with a particular focus on colors, and a delightful search-and-find element on every spread—the intrepid mouse herself.
