Staff Pick: The House That Mouse Built
In one of my final acts before departing for this holiday weekend, I just wanted to share one of my favorite kids' books from the year: The House That Mouse Built, by Portland artist Maggie Rudy. My almost three-year-old daughter's Nana and Pawpa bought her the book when they visited from Fresno during Thanksgiving. It has been Francesca's bedtime book pick nearly every night since. She has also memorized most of it, which is one of the sweetest recitations I have ever heard. Am I sick of it yet — having read it one, two or three times a day since Black Friday? Surprisingly, not yet.
