Mouse Was Mad

Teaser Tuesday

Mouse Was Mad
Written by Linda Urban, Illustrated by Henry Cole

This picture book has a simple story with sharp, eye-catching illustrations that young children will love.  Mouse is really, really mad.  He tries to express his anger in many ways:  stamping like the bear, screaming like the bobcat, hopping like the hare, etc.  But none of these ways work for him.  In fact, in each scenario he ends up falling into the “mucky mud puddle.”  (a phrase your children will love to repeat for you as you read it)  Then Mouse finally finds the way to express his anger that works for him, and he’s not angry any more.  What a delightful way to introduce a discussion about how to deal with anger!
