The beloved Margaret Wise Brown, author of GOODNIGHT MOON and THE RUNAWAY BUNNY has a new line of classics including seventeen new books that will be published in 2019. Author, Amy Gary, discovered a trunk of manuscripts and songs written by Margaret Wise Brown and those manuscripts have provided the source material for these new books.

In COUNT TO 10 WITH A MOUSE, young children will love the repetitive text and adorable illustrations of a mouse traveling through the holes of a book. The back cover of the book tells kids to open the book very gently because there is a mouse inside. Then the mouse travels through the holes in the book, counting the things he sees including four monkeys or seven apples.

Each page repeats the text so younger children can “read along” once they learn what phrase is coming next. Then, of course, counting the items on the pages will help them learn to count as well.

The illustrations are soft, watercolor-like images. The pages are calming and the animals are adorable. This book is sure to become a classic for kids learning to count and read.
