Description

Scoochie, like all mice, is a quiet creature, careful in her comings and goings. She likes nothing better than to sleep beneath the warm feathers of her best-hen-friend, Henrietta.

This gentle story for young children follows Scoochie, and her animal and gnome friends, though the seasons of the year as they understand and live out the values of the farm: a deep reverence for nature, kindness towards all creatures, love and goodness.

This is a healing story for our times, which has been especially designed to be read aloud. Developed in a Steiner-Waldorf setting, parents and teachers alike will find the story enriching and affirming at home or in the classroom.

Reviews

'I found The Adventures of Scoochie Mouse a pleasant book to read, full of kindness and gentle moral insights; it left me with a warm feeling and I believe children of all ages would enjoy reading it, or having it read to them. Its underlying theme is one of showing respect for the eart and for each other -- a valuable message for today.'
