What did you like about the book? The popular nursery rhyme comes to life in a clockmaker’s shop. The digital illustrations are filled with bright colors and details as a variety of animals visit a bear in his shop. Sturdy board pages and easy to manipulate tabs and slides bring lots of surprises for little readers. Each chime of the clock reveals another mouse until by 4, the four little mice are asleep inside the grandfather clock. A fun rendition of the rhyme for youngest readers. The back cover has a QR Code that can be scanned to listen to the song.
