It is snowing outside and there is plenty of snow on the ground so Mouse and Poppa go outside to play. Mouse has never done this before so he carefully watches what his father does. Then, being a brave and interested little mouse, he tries everything himself. So, following his father’s example Mouse tries sledding, skating, making a snow angel, and building a snow home. Then together Mouse and Poppa build a little snow mouse.

Children who have never experienced snow before will love sharing in Mouse’s wintertime adventure. Warm acrylic paintings and plenty of loud sound words will make this a perfect book to read on a winter’s night
