City Mice Invade the Countryside

One of the Little Mice feeds apples to our neighbor’s cows.

Recently, my dear urban-dwelling friend the City Mouse visited us with her two Little Mice in tow. Their sojourn here in the countryside was not only a great chance to reunite with people (or mice) that I love, but it reminded me how important it is for kids to have some chances to bond with nature.

The Little Mouse runs back to an apple tree to re-stock her fruit supply for the hungry cows.

I hope there comes a day when all the little City Mice get a chance to spend some time outdoors with their Country Mouse compatriots.

  1. Sweet story – reminiscent of the tale of the “City Mouse – Town Mouse” story I heard as a child.
