Another great Eve Bunting book. The Mother's Day Mice tells of three mice going to the meadow in search of Mother's Day gifts for their mom. As they journey they must hide from several animals to avoid being eaten. They return safely home and give their gifts when their mom awakens. Mother Mouse thinks all of her gifts from her children are lovely because they are given with love.
