Mice and Beans. (Books for children: fiction).

Ryan, Pam Munoz

MICE AND BEANS. Il. by Joe Cepeda. ISBN 0-439-18303-0. New York: Scholastic Press, 2001. Unp. $15.95. Rice and beans, fresh-squeezed lemonade, a birthday cake, and seven candles for her granddaughter's birthday--Rosa Maria has all the ingredients for the party. Even in her small house, there will be room for everything, except for a mouse! The family's excitement is expressed in brilliant colors that fairly jump off the page, and readers will have the opportunity to learn some Spanish. As Rosa Maria says, "When there's room in the heart, there's room in the house ... even for a mouse." Ages 5-7.--H.J.B.A.
