This week we are looking at a new book. 


Look at the front cover and can you predict what you think our new story will be about? 

Tell your adult.


Questions to ask the children:

  • Where do you think they are in the book?
  • Who do you think is the main character?
  • What do you think will happen to the mouse?
  • What will happen in the woods? 

Listen to the story through the video.

Discuss the story in detail with your child. 


Questions to ask and discuss: 

  • Who are the characters in the story?
  • Where is the story set?
  • What happens to the mouse?
  • What are the animals trying to do to the mouse?
  • Are the animals really scared of the mouse? Or are they scared of something else? 
  • Which animal did the mouse see first?
