Summary
When a group of children finds an abandoned baby deer mouse, they bring it to the nest of a wild white-footed mouse. But will the new mother adopt the tiny orphan? Stunning, close-up photos and simple, satisfying text teach children all about wild mice; and a special fact section at the back of the book answers more questions about these appealing little creatures.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2^-4. Although it starts out as a fictional account of an orphaned wild deer mouse, this informative work of nonfiction describes in detail the physical characteristics, life cycle, habits, and enemies of this particular species of mouse. The readable text is accompanied by engaging, well-suited full-color photographs. In a question-and-answer format, additional information about the furry animal extends the facts presented in the text. Young children, especially those who like small furry animals, will enjoy this and find it useful for assignments. --April Judge"
