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.

    Mia would love this one and the cute little mouse, hope it’s available in store here. I love adding to her library. My very old copy of Goodnight Moon is on the bookshelf for the grandkids πŸ™‚

    Oh this looks so cute! I like counting books like this, it’s a great way to teach them when they’re young. I’ll have to see if we have this at the store and if not it may be a good one to stock. Thanks for sharing!

    I love that you’re reading to Sophia and helping her become a bookworm already, Kim! That book looks adorable… Almost too bad my kids are way too old for it πŸ˜‰

    Love reading Nonna’s posts. Looking at her book list reminds me that I picked up “I Love You Through and Through” as a baby shower gift.

    If you’ve been to my blog *and you have* then you already know how much I love rodents. I’m always on the look out for mice, rat and hamster stuffed animals and the fact that this one comes with a book makes it exactly what I would get for my grandson. Will be looking for this on Amazon. Thanks!

    It’s Margaret Wise Brown!! I can totally see it sold out πŸ™‚ I wish I knew she wrote this book when Jake was a baby! This version is so pretty and the mouse is so cute!! I still love stuffed animals – I can’t control myself when I see cute ones I want to buy!!

    Daww…this sounds like a cute read (and gift package). Having a stuffed mouse companion would make the book more fun and relatable. I know I loved stuffed animals as a child! Thanks for sharing, Kimberly!

    I love book shopping for my nieces and nephews! This looks like a cute fun read for little ones and I’m glad you and Sophia loved it.
