    Perfect Book for Young Patriots!, June 14, 2004

    This review is from: Fourth of July Mice! (Hardcover)

    Those charming holiday mice are back- and this time they are celebrating Independence Day. Their day is packed with activities- a noisy, flag-waving parade, a picnic to munch, a baseball game with the local bugs, and a sack race. There is even a swim in the pond where the littlest mouse overcomes his fear of swimming. The day ends in a happy burst of fireworks, and a cheer for America. The bouncy, rhymed text is great to read aloud, and the lively illustrations are full of clever details. A fun, joyous celebration of our country’s birthday- a perfect book for young patriots!

    Devon loves fireworks…and this book!, August 6, 2010

    This review is from: Fourth of July Mice! (Hardcover)

    The last “love package” I sent my great-grandson Devon contained clothing and a red firetruck. I wasn’t ready to buy him anything else yet, but when his mother called to thank me for the other gifts, Devon got on the phone. At three years young he jabbers a lot. He dutifully thanked me for the lighted tennies, firetruck and other things…in his hurried, jubilant manner.

    And THEN…

    He took off with a long yammer about fireworks: “purple fireworks…” “Orange fireworks…” On an on he went. Neither I nor his mother could shut that kid up…but we really didn’t want to. It was too-ooo cute and spontaneous.

    You see, his mother had taken him to the park the previous night to view the Fourth of July festivities and this was the first year he got really excited about the fireworks.

    Well, when I saw him that happy, since he would have no use for fireworks, I thought a book with those colorful, bursting sky displays would be just the thing! I searched on Amazon and came up with this charming book. I chose it because of the fireworks on the cover and because it had all the “trimmings” of a family Independence Day celebration: flags, a parade, picnic, baseball game, etc. Besides all of that, it also has a full-page picture of a real firetruck! How could I resist?

    When it arrived, his mother read the rhymed text to him in sing-song fashion and said he giggled all the way through; his eyes were as big as saucers as he ogled the pictures, pointing to everything in the book. As we knew he would, he exclaimed loudly over the fireworks, his little body animated with pleasure.

    I’m very pleased with this purchase and the rapid delivery; it arrived in their mailbox only two days after I ordered it. My only regret is that I couldn’t be there to see his reaction. These little mice, the illustrator of the colorful drawings and the author get five stars. I’d give them more, if I could.

    I’m sure this book is much better in print. Three scanned images per screen made the illustrations very difficult to see, and the simple text would have been better suited to a slower pace. Over $9 was a ridiculous waste for this book.
