I’m NOT A Mouse (Child’s Play Library)
Sometimes moms or parents have a name that they like to call their child(ren); sometimes the child likes it, sometimes they don’t. For the girl in this book, she knows I’m NOT a Mouse!. This story is about a little girl whose mom keeps calling her “Mouse,” when the girl doesn’t like being called that because it makes her feel like an actual mouse. When she turns into a mouse, some funny things end up happening to her. The girl never tells her mother though, maybe because she doesn’t have time between when she is called “Mouse” and when she turns into a mouse! The girl knows that she has to say or do something. She lets her mom know that she doesn’t like the nickname or pet name, and then the girl learns that her mother only calls her that because she loves her. The end of the book shows kids called nicknames by their family members, even in different languages! I noticed that the people in the book are all different, with different colored skin and some with disabilities. I think that any kid would like this book because it has a fun story; you can also learn about keeping people’s feelings in mind when you want to call them something.
