Nancy White Carlstrom is the author of more than fifty books for children, including nine other titles in the Jesse Bear series, Who Said Boo?, and Wild Wild Sunflower Child Anna. Ms. Carlstrom lives in Fairbanks, Alaska, with her husband, David, and their two son, Jesse and Josh. And while the olive too far away for frequent visits with their family, they enjoy traveling to see their family as often as possible.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-- It's moving day, and one by one, Mama packs up Little Mouse's favorite belongings. As each is packed, the youngster finds a good reason for not leaving his special places. His mother is understanding but subtle. When Little Mouse refuses to leave his room with the star window, she reassures him that if he didn't come with the family, "we couldn't get to sleep without you." While promising that they will always remember the joys of their old home, Mama finally convinces little mouse that "it's better being all together in someplace new." Carlstrom's text is perfectly paced, with childlike foibles convincingly intertwined with real fears. The repetition of Little Mouse's cry, "But I'm not moving, Mama!," makes this a good choice for reading aloud. Wickstrom's illustrations are charming and inventive, capturing the warm, playful relationship between mother and child. Even with so many successful books on this subject, the genuine affection fully evident here makes this one especially rewarding. --Lori A. Janick, Parkwood Elementary School, Pasadena, TX
