Summary: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.
Review: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.
