The Mouse and the Rock

Linda Day

Illustrated by
Tawn R. Morrison

Resource Summary Page




The Mouse and the Rock

This is a marvelous children's book written by Linda Day and beautifully illustrated by Tawn R. Morrison.  It is a book that can be read and enjoyed by children and adults together.  


From the Forward of the Book:

Whimsically illustrated,  this tale artfully outlines a universal approach for the times we are immobilized by life's burdens. The story of the mouse, with whom we quickly identify, compassionately brings together thinking through the issues, taking calculated risks, and bearing the inevitable cost of moving ahead to a future we can only dream of while stuck. 

The story promotes the interaction of little readers with adults, as they process not only the solutions, but also the cost of freedom. Adult readers will undoubtedly be challenged and inspired to look at possible parallels in their own lives.

Delightful and entertaining, with several layers of meaning, I am confident in recommending this book to adults and children alike. We do, after all, have our own unique rocks, which hold us back.
