How Joe the Bear and Sam the Mouse Got Together
Beatrice Schenk De Regniers ~ Brinton Turkle
Parents' Magazine Press, 1965
Too cute. Too cute. Too cute!!! The perfect tale of how opposites attract and how all friends can find a common ground. A great first reader with wonderful illustrations, it has a funny storyline that's easy to follow. Plus, the dapper, 1920s garb these two are sporting just kills me.
And soooo, the bear and the mouse meet and agree to do something together but they find all sorts of obstacles get in the way...
One wants to live in a big house, the other wants to live in a small house... one likes to go fast, the other likes to go slow...one likes to play drums while the other prefers the violin... until at last they find something they can agree on...
You will live in a big house.
I will live in a little house.
You will play football and ride slow.
I will play baseball and ride fast.
You will play violin music.
I will play drum music.
But everyday at three o'clock...
Yes, everyday at three o'clock...
We will eat ice cream together.
You scream, I scream, no?
