One of a series of toy books, In My Patch follows a young mouse's daily adventures through a fall pumpkin patch.  Although he does many fun things, we discover his family is the best part of his day. 

Colorful, bold collage illustrations and simple text make this little book a great introduction to "story" with a sweet message, and contain enough contrast to keep from being overly "busy."  The sturdy die cuts are easy for infant fingers to grasp and a well-attached mouse finger puppet can tolerate an infant's pull and give him or her another tactile dimension to explore.
