Mia the Mouse by Lily Small -- OPTIONAL

Small, Lily Mia the Mouse (Fairy Animals of Misty Wood #4). Henry Holt and Company, 2013. $5.99. Content: G.

Mia the Mouse loves to create stories. Unfortunately, she's so distracted by a story when her mom sends her out to do an errand that she completely forgets what she's supposed to pick up. Well, almost completely. The item does start with a B. Helpful? Only a little.

This is a cute early chapter book. The larger font, frequent illustrations, and magical animal fairies will appeal to many early elementary readers. Because of its very unscary nature, this would also work for a read-aloud for younger children who are just gaining a chapterbook attention span. Although this is the fourth in the series, it stands alone just fine.
