Little mouse discovers that you should never let your eyes grow bigger than your stomach when you are hungry. Read this charming book to find out how mouse learns a lesson about the difference between being greedy and being thankful.
This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving themed read aloud books. I made a laminated mouse from the story and images of all the foods mouse tries to balance on top of a pea to carry back to his hiding hole. As we read the story, we first give mouse one green pea to hold, and with each new food item, we add more and more until the pile begins to tip and lean. The kids love the way the cat peeks up over the table to spy on the little mouse.
