Gr. 1. Mama Mouse just wants to fill her empty nest (a purple shoe) with water and take a nice, hot bath. But there's barely a trickle from the garden hose before fairy-tale friends of various sorts (the hare and the tortoise, etc.) show up wanting to share her space. Janet Stevens' illustrations aren't nearly as polished as her usual pictures, and the rhyming text doesn't quite scan. That's somewhat balanced, however, by the appealing idea of this Green Light Reader.
