What Kind of Book is The Mother's Day Mice

Quotes from This Book

  • “Little mouse liked the thought, smooth feel of his brother’s tail. He thought the three of them, joined together, must be long as a snake. He didn’t want to think about snakes, though.”
  • “‘I love strawberries,’ she said. ‘The first ones taste of summer coming.’ She nibbled on the edge of berry and closed her eyes and Little Mouse knew she was tasting sunshine and sweet corn and the cold waters of Meadow Stream.”

Who Illustrated The Mother's Day Mice

illustrator
Jan Brett

With over thirty four million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation’s foremost author illustrators of children’s books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, “I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I’m drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real.”
