The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don & Audrey Wood
Little Mouse worries that the big, hungry bear will take his freshly picked, ripe, red strawberry for himself.
This is such a fun way to enjoy strawberries. Your kids can help you pick a few (they will probably eat most of them!), and you’ll have some to bring home for snacking, putting on ice cream, making jam… You can also freeze them to last longer and frozen strawberries are great to add to a smoothie. Remember to put dark clothing on your kids…chances are they will have red strawberry juice all over them when you’re all done.
