Conhecimento Comum



Though I am not sure about how the book ended, it was an overall good book on friendship. It shows that two people do not have to be exactly alike to enjoy each other's company. It shows a low point in their friendship and how one friend deals with the situation.

There is some great vocabulary opportunities in this book. However, it's too long and has too much text. I got bored. And that's saying something.

Narrated by Cassandra Morris. Violet and Jobie are sibling mice who've been living a good life in a house with humans and access to warmth, food and TV. When the humans trap and humanely release them in a natural area, Violet and Jobie find there is a lot to learn about living in the wild. A solid read-aloud for young families that explores complex themes: resilience, family, love, and friendship. Morris' youthful voice nicely suits the small mice and their explorations.

Violet and Jobie, mouse siblings, find themselves in a frightening predicament. While playing the Cheese Game (make the game go snap with the stick, then eat the cheese and peanut butter inside it), they are captured in a box and taken to something called a "State Park," where they are released. These two house mice have no idea how to survive in the wild, but they soon make friends who can tell them about the dangers and pleasures of outdoor life.

This is a charming little book for fans of anthropomorphic tales. It's generally realistic in its treatment of mouse life, where mice are considered a tasty snack for most of the larger creatures they encounter, though there are some fanciful parts. There's a good balance of excitement and thoughtful bits. The ending is a little more open than many tales for this age group, and would provoke discussion if read in a group setting. I can see this being a nice classroom read for second or third grade.… (mais)
