E back with a different theory It's only when the seventh mouse goes out and explores the whole Something that the mice see the whole truth Based on This has been one of my favorites since it was uite new when my older sons were reading it in school I found the cover enchanting with the contrast between the black silhouettes the mottled earthy background and the rainbow in the title And the first few pages with the rainbow grass stem shaped forms marching across uite literally thrill meThen the structure of the story which can be used to teach counting colors days of the week ordinal numbers and of course the theme as stated in the moral oh almost a perfect book Imo the only thing that could be improved is if the text was rhythmically repetitive instead of the fresh syntax for each explorationAnd what a wonderful theme it is to look at the whole of something before making a judgement I'm very glad I got this chance to reread the book and see how well it's held up I'm giving it five stars even though it's not absolutely perfect because I love it and because I do think everyone would enjoy it andor should read it
