Mouse Scouts is a cute little chapter book series that is perfect for young listeners to beginning readers. The stories are so cute and will hold even the youngest listener but not to hard for the independent reader. The illustrations are black and white and simply adorable. Each character is their own and has individual likes and differences that makes them a great little troop. This series would be a cute read for future or new Daisies or Girl Scouts. I loved that the craft badges they got were all nature based and included a craft. While I’m not sure how many books will be in this series if every badge gets a book it would mean close to 20. Some might say that is too long for a book series for younger bookworms however I think this has the staying power just like other long run book series Junie B Jones, Magic Tree House and more.
Meet Violet, Tigerlily, Hyacinth, Petunia, Junebug, and Cricket, six new Mouse Scouts who are trustworthy and strong, thrifty and brave . . . and destined to be friends to the end! Best friends Violet and Tigerlily can’t wait to start earning their merit badges. But their troop leader, Miss Poppy, is one strict rodent. And earning their first badge-planting a vegetable garden-is hard work. Will the troop drive unwanted pests from the garden and earn their Sow It and Grow It badge? And will they ever get Miss Poppy to smile?
Mouse Scouts Make A Difference
Violet, Tigerlily, and their friends are ready to earn their Make a Difference badge. If only they could agree on what kind of difference they want to make. But when the troop decides to clean up a local park, they find themselves facing an unusual rescue mission. Will the girls be able to make a real difference, or will this badge prove more than the Mouse Scouts can handle?
