Town Mouse, Country Mouse and The Mitten Literature Unit

By Jan Brett

 

Town Mouse, Country Mouse

Mrs. Town Mouse was tired of living in the city. Her husband offered to take her to the country for a picnic. She decided that would be a wonderful change from city life and off they went.

Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Country Mouse were worn out from country life. They were constantly trying to avoid the hungry owl and looking for food was difficult.

Mr. and Mrs. Town Mouse just happened to set up their picnic outside of the Country Mice’s house. After they overheard how much the town mice enjoyed their surroundings, they asked them to trade houses. The town mice took them up on their offer.

Each couple soon grew to realize that the grass was not always greener on the other side. Soon, each mouse couple decided they had enough of their new houses and they wanted to go back home where they were comfortable and felt safe. They ran as fast as they could until they were back in the comfort of their original homes.

The Mitten

A boy was out playing in the snow when he lost his mitten. A group of woodland animals came along one by one and decided the mitten would be the perfect place to get warm. A mole crawled in first, then along came a snowshoe rabbit, a hedgehog, an owl, a badger, and a fox who all climbed in one by one to get cozy inside the mitten. A big bear came by and squeezed in along with the others.

Finally, a tiny mouse crawled in the only spot left, which was on top of the bear’s nose. This made the bear sneeze which sent the animals flying out of the mitten. The boy, who was walking home from his day in the snow, and who was oblivious to all of the action, saw his lost mitten falling through the sky and grabbed it. Then he went home to his grandmother who was happy that he still had both of his mittens.
