Harvest Mouse

Most of us will never get to see a harvest mouse, so this orange-level book is the perfect way to peek into the lives of these tiny mammals that make their homes in fields and hedgerows. Discover how a female mouse goes foraging for grasshoppers and blackberries. Watch as she weaves a tennis ball-sized nest from grass. And learn what the brave mother mouse does when her tiny babies are under threat from a hungry weasel!
