and movement serves this story quite well. My favorite images are hare, bees, hens & chicks, goat, bear, parachute and sleep. Baker truly achieves the goal of the rhyme "The clock struck one, it's time for fun!" Appealing animals display a variety of behavior as they interact with the very active mouse around the grandfather clock. Mouse buzzes around in a bee colored plane, shovels kernels of corn to hens and chicks, and much nore. Among the action words used are flew, wrapped, hopped, buzzed, peeked, oinked, kicked, nibbled, grazed, bucked, and shone. There's a bedtime connection with moon at the end. The large font makes this a beginning reader possibility. There's lots of repetition in this. Recommended for school and public library collectios.

For ages 2 to 6, animal, counting, storytime, clocks, repeated-phrase, rhyming, bedtime, telling time, read-aloud, and fans of Keith Baker.
