Little Mouse’s Sweet Treat by Shana Hollowell is a delightful story where readers are introduced to Little Mouse who wants to eat something sweet. He bids goodbye to his mother and goes off to the woods to see his friend, the Bear. He hopes he will get a sugary snack there. The Bear only has honey and Little Mouse finds it yucky and runny. He then goes to Bunny who offers him clover. Little Mouse is not happy with that as he thinks clover is too lucky to eat. He decides to go to the Dog who offers him his master’s pie. But Little Mouse is not happy with that either. The Dog tells Little Mouse to go to the Cat but there he does not get anything he likes. He goes to all his friends but none of his friends has anything sweet to eat. He goes back home disappointed. Will Little Mouse finally get his sugary snack?

The story is educational, informative, and adorable and it not only introduces young readers to different types of animals, but also teaches children what foods different types of animals eat in their habitat. The illustrations breathe life into the story and scenes and give good pace and movement. It is an excellent bedtime storybook and it will be a fun read in classrooms for their read aloud sessions. The author's lyrical way of expressing and the rhymes will appeal a lot to readers and make this a fun read.
