(throw a stuffed mouse to the kids)
In School Mouse there is a family of mice living in the school - mostly
for shelter and leftovers. But not Flora Flora is interested
in what the children are learning. She listens in on the lessons
and eventually begins to read. Her family is not interested in learning
however, and sees no benefit to reading. Until one day when Flora
finds a bag marked “poison” and tries to save her family before they eat
it all up. This scares away the mice family and they decide to migrate
to a nearby field. But Flora wants to continue her lessons, so she
stays behind in the school to learn more. Find out what happens to
Flora and her family as they eventually reunite in the school and make
it their permanent home, and don’t forget to look out for mice in your
school! (Lena Michaud, email@example.com)
