A town mouse and a country mouse short story
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse by Christopher E. LongThe Town Mouse and the Country Mouse is a type of folklore. More specifically a Fable. Its designed for children P-I but can be enjoyed by readers of all ages.
The story was about two cousin mice who lived in two different worlds and came to visit each other. They both came to the conclusion that they preferred to live as they already had and werent meant to live as the other mouse.
I gave this book 4 stars. It is a fable that has been passed down through many generations and enjoyed by many children. I enjoyed the fact that even though the two mice were from completely different parts of town they were willing to experience life in the others world, so to speak. This would be a great lesson, especially for young children, to encourage trying to understand that its okay to be different but to be willing to understand others.
I think many children have and will enjoy this book for years to come. Just by looking at the pictures and the colors used, I am sure children are drawn in by the colors and pictures that make them understand what the words are saying. Young children could then do extension activities such as making their own town mouse or country mouse and then acting out the story.
Country Mouse and Town Mouse
A Town and Country Mouse visited each other. The Town Mouse was fed basic food at leisure; the Country Mouse had to run away from fine food. He ran home. Better beans and bacon in peace than cakes and ale in fear. Now you must know that a Town Mouse once upon a time went on a visit to his cousin in the country.
A Town Mouse once visited a relative who lived in the country. For lunch the Country Mouse served wheat stalks, roots, and acorns, with a dash of cold water for drink. The Town Mouse ate very sparingly, nibbling a little of this and a little of that, and by her manner making it very plain that she ate the simple food only to be polite. After the meal the friends had a long talk, or rather the Town Mouse talked about her life in the city while the Country Mouse listened. They then went to bed in a cozy nest in the hedgerow and slept in quiet and comfort until morning. In her sleep the Country Mouse dreamed she was a Town Mouse with all the luxuries and delights of city life that her friend had described for her.
