Mouse Shapes by Ellen Stoll Walsh

The mice from Mouse Count, Mouse Paint, and Balancing Act are hiding from a cat in a pile of shapes. They have fun making things with the shapes—but the cat finds them! They decide to use the shapes to build “three big scary mice” to scare the cat—and it works! After reading this book, your children could use paper and cut out shapes to build their own designs—a great way to get them thinking about how geometric shapes fit together and make pictures.
