Picture Book of the Day

Happy Easter, Mouse!
By Laura Numeroff (Author) and Felicia Bond (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Help Mouse find out who is leaving Easter eggs all over the house!

When he wakes up on Easter
morning, he finds a yellow egg
under his covers.

With each page turn of this board book, readers see Mouse finding eggs in a new color. The color words are printed in that color – a nice touch!

Booktalk: Fudge and Einstein are ferrets. Marvel is a cat. Two ferrets plus one cat equal trouble.

EINSTEIN: She’ll bug us more.

FUDGE: We could run away.
EINSTEIN: Then who would feed us raisins?

The sirens went off three times Tuesday afternoon, but the 13(!) tornadoes didn’t pass directly over our house, thank goodness!

If you didn’t see the tractor trailers lifted up by the tornado, watch this video.
