Kindergarten read alouds

Jaxon is in kindergarten this year and reading books aloud is our favorite part of the day.

These are our mouse books! Ok, Charlotte’s web has a rat in it but we are counting it.

Stuart Little, E. B. White

Very different from the movie, Stuart is more of a tiny man then a little boy, but a fun easy to understand story.

The Mouse and the Motorcycle, Beverly Cleary

Jaxon loved this book. It’s a fun mouse adventure and is about being responsible. We have listened to the audio books of the other two in this series (Runaway Ralph and Ralph S. Mouse) and also loved them both.

The Tale of Despereaux, Kate DiCamillo

A brave mouse who falls in love with a princess. Once again, better then the movie.

Miss Bianca in the Salt Mines, Margery Sharp

Miss Bianca is the mouse from the Rescuers and this is a charming well written story. I found this book in a Little Free Library and at the time didn’t know what it was, but I’m very glad I got it!

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH

This is the book we are currently reading so to be honest I don’t know how it ends! But it’s a lovely story of a mother mouse try to take care of her family. With owls and crows and rats and a mean cat.

Charlotte’s Web, E. B. White

I’m sure the most well known. And now, thanks to this book, Jaxon has a “best friend” who is a spider named popcorn.

Did we miss any good mouse book?!?
