Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Wash is the perfect book for this month! In this book, white mice find mysterious jars of paint and jump into them! The jars of paint happen to be the primary colors red, yellow, and blue. In this book, the clever mice explore color. Your child will learn about mixing colors and will fall in love with these wonderful mice. If you would like to do an activity with this book as your backdrop, you can help your child make an abstract painting using only the primary colors as well.
If your child likes this book, we also recommend Mouse Count. The mice strike again in this book, and prove to be little heroes. This book reinforces counting forwards and backwards, which are both very important for your little one to learn. Counting backwards is a precursor to subtraction, so this book is a great go-to!
