When Mama Frog and Father Frog disappear, two little frog children are left all alone. Blackbird, Mole and Hedgehog would all like to help, but no one knows how. When Mama Mouse shows up and agrees to take them in, she simply says, "A child is a child, and all children need a place to live and play, good food, and someone who loves them."
So all the animals pitch in to help, doing what each does best. Hedgehog gathers worms to eat, Mole digs a bedroom, and Blackbird fetches a water pail for their bath. Everyone gets into the act, and Mama Mouse proves that if at first glance we may seem to be very different, in the end we're not so different at all
Perfect for preschools and kindergartens, this charming tale has a universal message, expertly brough to life by the team that produced the popular Davy books.
