The Hubby and I are definitely City Mice.... but this past week we decided to surround ourselves with country-like surroundings at a local farm. . . . .
We took a trip to Lamb's Farm this past week and schmoozed with the animals, visited their antique market and rode the carousel about a million and one times! Great fun was had by all, but mommy was happy to be home after such a long hot day spent in the sun.
The Country Mouse and The City Mouse
Earlier in the year I picked up a Little Golden book copy of The Country Mouse and The City Mouse along with two other short tales which include The Fox and The Crow and The Dog and His Bone. All three stories happen to be in the Best Story Book Ever as told by Patricia Scarry (who is not credited in the Best Story Book version) and of course illustrated by the wonderful Richard Scarry. Unfortunately, I don't think its in print any longer. I may be wrong, but after a quick look on Amazon I didn't see any new copies available. Anyhoo, we all know the story so I'll spare you the details and go straight to the illustrations, my favorite of which involves a cat!
Enjoy your Weekend Kiddos!
