My Thoughts

Rosemary refuses to go to school because the teacher told the class they were going to have a mouse and a web in their classroom.  She definitely does not like mice and spiders and webs. Her mom tries to calm her child's concerns to no avail.  So her mother takes her to school early so she can address these concerns with the teacher.

Evidently the child misunderstood and did not listen to all the teacher had said to the class.  The teacher was telling them they would be learning to use a computer.

I found this to be a fun rhyming  story. where a computer mouse was thought to be a live squeaky mouse and the internet web was mistaken for a spider web with a big hairy spider. A child might have even thought the monitor was a giant lizard and ram was a big goat or sheep.  

I find children have limited attention spam so the minute the teacher mentioned a mouse and web Rosemary's imagination went into high gear and could not focus on all the teacher had to say. 

This is a good lesson to be learned. 

Don't just poo-foo your child's fears and concerns away. find out what is going on inside these amazing little brains helping them to see the real picture.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5+ out of 5.
