PPBF: Mina

Author/Illustrator: Matthew Forsythe
Publisher: Paula Wiseman, 2022
Age: 
3-7
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.

  2. Congrats on getting your review in the indie Next Pic. I tried when I was a bookseller, and was never chosen. This sounds like a great book. And I love the illustrations you’ve shown. Makes me want to get out my colored pencils just for fun.
