A lovely book for young readers and their caregivers, Little Mouse’s Sweet Treat combines an easy rhyme scheme and pleasant illustrations to create a great bedtime story.
Telling the story of Little Mouse on the search for a delectable snack, Hollowell has written the script for a picture book I can imagine reading with my son. It’s short enough that multiple readings in a night would be more than possible. Little Mouse meets plenty of friends and his sense of adventure also leads to a good lesson about sharing.
Illustrator Jennifer Finch has an eye for color in each page that unites Little Mouse with his next friend. There’s a dreamy quality to each picture and a brightness that will engage the young audience the book is intended for.
A winning combination of author and illustrator created this sweet book about Little Mouse and his journey to meet friends, search for a snack, and ultimately come home to a delicious surprise.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
