The Mouse that Sat on an Egg

Following in the grand tradition of Horton, a small mouse named Nuu-Nuu agrees to substitute for a lazy bird that needs a break from egg-sitting. But lazy birds - well, they're not very responsible, and Nuu-Nuu sits for much longer than she had expected.

She fills her days by reading, with time out to protect the egg from whatever threatens it. In the end, her efforts bring a welcome surprise. Her story is a fun celebration both reading, and of taking responsibility.
