My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Miss Mousie's Blind Date is a cute rhyming story for the young that addresses self-confidence. Miss Mousie has her feelings hurt when one that she finds to be so handsome, thinks very little of her. She thinks so little of her own appearance, that when asked on a blind date, she goes to great lengths to disguise herself before the meeting to hide her imperfections. In the end Miss Mousie learns that she is perfect the way she is and that all of her shenanigans to look pretty, were just silly.
I shared the story with my 4-year-old daughter who quickly became enthralled with the illustrations. I'm sure she didn't catch on to the premise of the story at here age, but I know she was delighted by the rhyming text anyway.
I think this book would be a wonderful read aloud for any young child who may be questioning their appearance.
