For Virtual Book Club for Kids we selected three of our favorite Ellen Stoll Walsh books to spotlight this month!
Our featured books for January include: Mouse Count, Mouse Paint and Mouse Shapes.
Have you read any of these books yet?
Ellen Stoll Walsh introduces the concept of counting forward and backward in a suspenseful story that will keep young readers guessing what's next.
One day three white mice discover three jars of paint--red, blue, and yellow. This lighthearted presentation of a lesson in color is fun for all ages. Plus Walsh’s cut-paper collage illustrations have bold colors and yet quite simple for all to enjoy.
What can you make with one oval, two circles, and eight triangles? Just ask three clever mice--who even find a funny way to trick a sneaky cat.
