For fans of Ivy and Bean and Junie B. Jones comes a brand-new chapter book series: Mouse Scouts!
Meet Violet, Tigerlily, Hyacinth, Petunia, Junebug, and Cricket, six new Mouse Scouts who are trustworthy and strong, thrifty and brave . . . and destined to be friends to the end! Best friends Violet and Tigerlily can’t wait to start earning their merit badges. But their troop leader, Miss Poppy, is one strict rodent. And earning their first badge—planting a vegetable garden—is hard work. Will the troop drive unwanted pests from the garden and earn their Sow It and Grow It badge? And will they ever get Miss Poppy to smile?
Violet, Tigerlily, and their friends are ready to earn their Make a Difference badge. If only they could agree on what kind of difference they want to make. But when the troop decides to clean up a local park, they find themselves facing an unusual rescue mission. Will the girls be able to make a real difference, or will this badge prove more than the Mouse Scouts can handle?
Brimming with lively black-and-white illustrations—including pages from the official Mouse Scout Handbook, plus diagrams, games, activities, and more—this darling new series is just right for chapter book readers.
This is an adorable series starting with these two books. The books are about a mouse scout troop (think girl scouts) who work their way through earning badges and their adventures doing that. They are like big chapter books for kids ages 8 and up probably. The girls are adorable in this series and each has their own personality. I think it would make a great series for any young child to start, especially if they are Ivy and Bean and Junie B Jones fans, which this series is compared to. I haven’t read the books in their entirety but did browse them. I love all the illustrations throughout (to help break up the font for kids) and the Handbook pages throughout which have neat facts and information on them, kinda like a regular scout handbook would be!
WIN IT: (1) US winner will receive the Mouse Scouts Set of Books
