Cheer Up, Mouse! by Jed Henry-Essential

Henry, Jed Cheer Up, Mouse!, 32 pgs. Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, 2013. $12.99. Content: G

Mouse is unhappy and all his animal friends want to cheer him up. Each in turn will do what makes him or her most happy in an effort to make mouse feel better, but can they make him smile again?

Fantastic illustrations and a fun story will make this book a wonderful read for children. An active plot with exciting vocabulary makes this a book that benefits from reading aloud with enthusiasm. The story also teaches a sweet lesson about friendship
and understanding what it means to help others.
