Tired of nibbling on cheese and crumbs, a small mouse begs her mother for something sweet and new. Mama Mouse brings her along on a journey to find the ingredients for a special treat made of a little bit of love. As they travel along, Mama Mouse shares how they can find a little bit of love in many places before they return home to make their treat.
A Little Bit of Love by Cynthia Platt is an adorable story that is every bit as sweet as the special treat small mouse and her mama create. Children learn how they can find love in the most surprising of places, as they follow small mouse and Mama Mouse to gather the ingredients for their special treat. Cooperation and the joy of sharing are other nice messages for youngsters to take away from this story.
The artwork by Hannah Whitty is charming. Using soft and warm colors, Whitty brings this story to life from the fat, buzzing honey bees to the stuffed cat often found in small mouse’s arms. The fuzzy mice on the front cover will encourage youngsters to pick up the book and read it often.
A Little Bit of Love will be a great addition to your child’s home library.
