Our playful mice on a mission: To find and eat as much cheese as they possibly can before they get caught by the cat for lunch! This very easy to read book will is a wonderful “I can read” book for early readers.
To our little book we’ve added a world of playful characters and shapes that open and produce surprises!!
Once again our English adaptation truly matches the melody of the Spanish so that parents can sing it in English as well as in Spanish.

Little ones will squeal with delight

The Lyrics

Cinco ratoncitos de colita gris,
mueven las orejas, mueven la nariz.

 

Abren los ojitos, comen sin cesar,
por si viene el gato, que los comerá.

 

Comen un quesito, y a su casa van,
cerrando la puerta, a dormir se van.
5 little mice with tails wide awake,
wiggle their noses and give their ears a shake.

 

Eyes wide open they quickly munch,
before they get caught by the cat for lunch.

 

They finish their cheese and back home they creep,
They close the door and go right to sleep.
