The Big House and the Little House
Little Mouse and Big Bear live on opposite ends of the same road, and they both would like a friend. But every morning, Little Mouse and Big Bear pass by each other, unnoticed. Until one day, their eyes meet!
It’s a little awkward at first--as most new friendships can be--but soon enough they’re sipping warm tea together in Big Bear’s cozy home, and making plans to meet again the following Sunday.
When a nasty storm blows into town will it wreck everything they’ve built?
This tale of friendship and bravery will warm your heart like a cookie and a warm drink shared with a friend.
