Little Mouse on the Prairie

Other than its cute title play on the television show with a similar name, Little Mouse on the Prairie didn’t impress me very much. Sure, it had cute doe-eyed illustrations much like the rest of the books in the Serendipity series produced in the late 1970s for children, and I do like that it features animals, whom my daughter loves as well. But the book itself portrays a very confusing message for kids, and I wasn’t even sure what to say when my daughter didn’t get the book when we were finished with it, either.
