Author/Illustrator: Matthew Forsythe

Themes: mice, parents, pets
Opening: Mina lived in her own little world where nothing ever bothered her. Except for one thing.
Summary: (from my library’s catalog) Mina the mouse is very upset when her father brings home a pet “squirrel” that she is certain is a cat.
I picked this book because: see my review on the Kid’s Indie Next List, March/April 22, image below:
Resources/activities: I hope in reading this kids – like me – feel the urge to draw in color! Try drawing lines in one color first and going over the same lines with another color, laying down an area of colored pencil and using an eraser to draw in that space, or using one range of colors, like greens, blues and purples for a single drawing.
