In Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse! by Laura Joffe Numeroff is another story about Mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. In this story Mouse is celebrating Valentine's Day with all the friends he loves and adores. He makes Valentine's to each friend and what he loves about each one of his friends.
I first must say that we love books by Laura Numeroff, she has such creative ideas and her books with the illustrator Felicia Bond are amazing. With that said, this book is just like the others that have created before it. We follow Mouse as he makes Valentine's for his friends and of course to Mouse has to ask for everything. My kids loved this book and we love how colorful the illustration is. They thought it was fun to follow Mouse on his Valentine's celebration. We recommend reading this and other Laura Numeroff.
