The Mother's Day Mice
by Eve Bunting, Jan Brett (Illustrator). It's Mother's Day and the three mouse brothers, Biggest, Middle, and Little, have only a short time to get their presents. Biggest Mouse and Middle Mouse manage to overcome the dangers lurking in the meadow and find the gifts that they’re after. But it is Little Mouse, returning empty-handed, who comes up with the most meaningful gift of all. With lush illustrations by Jan Brett, the book is a sweet story about the true meaning of Mother’s Day, and a beautiful celebration of the spring season.
