Patrons will notice the “Place Hold” option has been removed for print items. This will last only while LION Libraries are closed for the COVID-19 pandemic. The reasons are two-fold: Our libraries aren’t able to share items with the public at the moment, and we don’t want to overwhelm our delivery service when we return to normal operations. Patrons will still be able to add items to their personal lists for future reference.

First edition.
Like Rosemary Wells's Read to Your Bunny and with the charm of The Wonderful Things You Will Be, this gorgeous book will surely appeal to families who want their children to become lifelong readers. Long before the words make sense, Mousie, I will read to you The simplest story, about an acorn that drops to the ground. So begins this warm and poignant picture book that follows a mama mouse and her baby mouse on the little mouse's journey to becoming a reader--from infancy, to toddlerhood, to elementary school, and beyond. When Mousie is little, Mama sings him lullabies about the sky, repeats back his DA DA DEES and BA BA BEES, and reads him poems and stories about wonderful things like forests and bears. Then one day, on a playground next to the library, Mousie sounds out a word, then two, then three . . . and a reader is born! Inspired by the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation to read aloud to your children from the day they are born, here is a charming picture book that celebrates families reading together.
