Bear Mouse has always taken good care of her little mouslings – she’s fed them all winter long and tended to their every need. But now, food is running low and she cannot feed them unless she herself is fed. There’s only one thing she can do – leave them alone and hope they stay safe while she searches for food above ground.
But Bear Mouse isn’t the only one who’s hungry – foxes and bobcats are out hunting, too! Can Bear Mouse find food and make it back to her mouslings?
Conclusion. Not the most endearing picture book, but Bear Mouse’s devotion to her mouslings is admirable.
