Deer Mouse at Old Farm Road

Illustrated by Katy Bratun

Soundprints, curated by Smithsonian Institution

A natural history book, part of the Backyard Wildlife series. A mouse's point of view is such a fun distinction in a children's book. It encourages the artist to look at things in a different way - for a mouse, a leaf or flower can be 3 or 4 times her size. Nibbling on an apple might take a mouse a few days or more. And dandelion fluff is big enough and soft enough to make a nice cozy bed....Zzzzzzzzz
