Gramma Mouse is gathered with all her little grandchildren around her and they begin begging for her to tell them a story. This is the beginning of the book titled, “Gramma Mouse Tells a Story,” by M.E. Hembroff. I was so excited to review this book and tell my readers about it.
This book is for younger children. It is written with simple words and easy to understand comments. This book is written as the main character, Gramma Mouse, tells a story of herself as a tiny mouse going on a trip to visit her cousin mouse across the garden.
Gramma’s Ma and Pa tell her to be very careful because there are scary, dangerous things in the garden. Gramma is called, Tiny. because she is so small. Tiny assures her parents she will be very careful. But, as Tiny adventures off into the garden, she sees a lot of bright and exciting things.
The bees, the butterflies, the gopher and others all tell Tiny to be cautious of the dangerous Cat, Dog and Hawk because they all will try to eat her. Tiny doesn’t really listen but, when she sees the hawk she gets really scared. More animals warn Tiny and she still doesn’t quite listen and then she sees the dog and her heart beats really scared, “thump. thump. thump”, goes Tiny’s little heart.
Now Tiny is scared and she sees the kitty cat, wow! she is really scared! Soon Tiny is able to reach cousin mouse’s house safely and they begin to enjoy each other’s company.
I believe the moral of this story is to always listen to what you are told or you could end up hurt. This is a cute little 40 page book with pretty illustrated pictures. My grandchildren loved it and the 5 year old really loved the “scary” parts when Tiny’s heart was thumping.
You can purchase this book from Amazon.com for around $11.00 and it makes a great bedtime story.
