Today I am sharing a book that my husband and I picked up for Sophia. Count to 10 with a Mouse by Margaret Wise Brown, author of Goodnight Moon. It is beautifully illustrated by Kristen Richards. Our edition came in a boxed set with an adorable stuffed mouse. We picked it up at Barnes and Noble, but when I checked at Amazon it is out of stock. Hopefully, it will be available around the holidays. Grab a cup of mocha peppermint coffee and check out this cute book!

Mouse really wants to learn to count so he can find out how many fingers and toes he has. He's spotted a hole in this counting book that's just his size and has crawled inside to start his adventure with numbers. So, slowly and carefully, turn the pages and learn to count with Mouse!
Count to 10 with a Mouse is a delightful book that teaches counting to children three to five years of age. It is the story of a mouse no bigger than a mole who tried to count his nose and toes but didn’t know how to count. He sets off on adventure chewing his way through books to learn how to count. Each double page teaches a number along the way with cute illustrations done by Kristen Richards in a soft muted palette. Sophia loves the story and we can stretch it out by talking about the mouse, objects and counting the different things. A delightful, simple book that is sure to make your little ones smile.
The edition we bought came with an adorable little-stuffed mouse that is the perfect size for little hands. While not available online, do keep an eye out for it at your local stores. It would make the perfect gift.
