The Lovereading4Kids comment

Delight in all the things you are NOT meant to do! “Don’t lend your hat and coat to a goat.

Nick Sharratt’s illustrations capture brilliantly the madcap essence of the verses.

Never Shake a Rattlesnake by Michaela Morgan

But when it comes to dealing with grumpy grizzly bears and hairy chimpanzees, things get a lot more complicated ...

Reviews

Encouraging children while giving them permission not to be cajoled into exceeding their personal comfort zone is a powerful message. . . . There's a place for this one in every preschool and kindergarten library. -- Booklist on Brave Mouse
