Puttock, Simon Mouse’s First Night at Moonlight School Nosy Crow(Candlewick) , 2014. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK
Nighttime animals needs to go to school too right? Luckily Miss Moon has Moonlight School just for them. But one student is missing, little mouse. Bat, Cat, and Owl have all shown up. Will Miss Moon be able to coax the Mouse out of hiding and help her to feel welcome?
This is a really cute story about the shy kid. I like that the teacher showed that being shy can be a strength and that one doesn’t need to be shy all the time, especially with friends. This is a fun book to read with a class that has a few shy students. Also might be a welcome fiction addition/relief to a lesson for younger students about daytime vs nighttime animals. Top notch adorable artwork.
