I know! It's not just a movie! I was as surprised as you are. Just re-published this summer - this book is the first in a series of books that make up the "crumbs and clues" collection. The collection includes 5 of the books that were originally published in the 1950s about a detective mouse who is inspired by the real Sherlock Holmes! (If this is too advanced for your little one - try out the same author's "Anatole" series that we read last year about a mouse living in Paris. eek! too cute.)
Just in time for Halloween. Something a little bit weird. Cats with wings born in the slums decide to find a safehaven in the country.
November: The Princess in Black
Like the other two selections above this is the start of a series. My hope is that one of these will really jive with us and I will get the "mom, can we read more?" request! Fingers crossed! I would love to shift my daughter's perception of princesses from the traditional Disney's sleeping beauty to an heroic princess who wears black to rescue a group of goats for a big blue monster.
Fall Easy Readers Series: Little Bear
Illustrated by Maurice Sendak (author of Where the Wild Things Are), this is a cozy little series about a bear and his family and friends. It's a perfect way to introduce reading to my little one who will be starting to read in French at school. I hope this classic series will help her to get energized about reading out loud in English over the course of the fall at home too!
