Town Mouse Country Mouse
Written and Illustrated by Jan Brett
Town Mouse and Country Mouse is a great story to share about being happy with what you have. Town Mouse would like to get out of the city and into the country to relax and enjoy life. Country Mouse wonders what it might be like to have somewhere safe to sleep each night and to be able to eat whenever they like. Once there, they find it to be not quite what they had hoped it would be. The illustrations are completely fantastic and a story all their own. Jan Brett's books are beautifully illustrated and great books to take "picture walks" through before reading. This is one of those stories that has been retold over the years and loved by many. There are many variations of this wonderful fable.
