Today post is from Sarah Dillard, author and illustrator who wrote the book series “Mouse Scouts”. She designed the books to take your girls on a adventure with two adorable mouse friends, who are working on earning a badge. Each book also includes projects and activities for your girls to complete. There is even a fun patch!
The “Mouse Scouts” book series by Sarah Dillard follows two mouse friends- Violet and Tigerlily- as they have adventures with their Mouse Scout troop. Each book in the series focuses on earning a badge. And each chapter ends with a page from the Mouse Scout handbook, full of projects and activities for Mouse Scouts and Girl Scouts alike.
Many reviewers are comparing “Mouse Scouts” to “Junie B. Jones” because of its appeal to elementary readers. This series is easily appropriate for grades K-5 (Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Girl Scouts). Your troop is sure to recognize some fun scouting traditions!
There are currently three books in the series; Mouse Scouts, Mouse Scouts Make a Difference and Mouse Scouts Camp Out. A fourth in the series, Mouse Scouts Make Friends will be published in January 2018.
The books are available where ever books are sold. Purchase them now on Amazon
Free Activity Kit and Fun Patch
In addition, a free activity kit that can be used in conjunction with any of the books is available at www.mousescouts.com. After you read the books and do the activities with your girls stop over to the mouse scout shop, where you can purchase your very own Mouse Scout patch!
Sarah Dillard was briefly a Brownie and a Junior Scout. She fondly remembers making macaroni necklaces and, less fondly, one horrible camping trip when she had to eat the worst oatmeal ever. On the brighter side, Sarah studied art at Wheaton College and illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. Sarah is also the writer and illustrator ofPerfectly Arugula, First Day at Zoo School and the Extraordinary Warrenbooks.. She lives in Waitsfield, Vermont, with her husband and chocolate lab.
