Mouse Scouts

Reviewed by:

Best friends VIolet and Tigerlily have been looking forward to being Mouse Scouts forever. They used to be Butterflies, but have now graduated to become Acorn Scouts. Violet is determined to be the best Acorn ever, while free-spirited Tigerlily is more interested in having fun. However, they are both nervous about their new leader, Miss Poppy, who is much stricter than their previous one. As the Scouts work together to plant and take care of a garden in order to get their Grow and Sow badge, they foil the bugs and raiders who attempt to take advantage of the bounty before them. Interspersed in between their
adventures are simple, comic drawings and snippets from the ‘Mouse Scout Handbook’, adding some diversity for new chapter book readers. The second book in the series, Mouse Scouts: Make a Difference is already out, giving two books for those young readers who have finished Ivy and Bean and are looking for another lively series.
