If you have a child who is ready to start reading on his own, this sweet book by Arnold Lobel is a great place to start. In this book, a sneaky weasel catches a little mouse. The mouse is about to be mouse soup, unless he can find a way to distract the weasel. Young readers will laugh along and love to see how the mouse outsmarts the weasel. The story is simple enough for children to read on their own but interesting enough to keep them entertained.
