Deep in the Woods
by Christopher Corr

Amazon Description:
In this retelling of the classic Russian folk tale Teremok, a little house in the woods is chosen as the perfect place to live by a little mouse. One day, there is a knock on the door. It’s a rabbit, and the mouse invites him to come and live in the little house. The next day, there is another knock, and an owl comes to live in the little house, too. Many more animals join until eventually, a bear knocks on the door. Trying to fit inside the little house, a bear climbs on to the roof and it crashes to the ground. Can he put everything right?

My Thoughts:
This seemingly simple picture book contains a little secret that all children could learn from. Its whimsical illustrations, and witty text, tell the tale of a large group of forest friends that decide to live together in a wooden house. Deep in the Woods reminds the reader that despite the differences in those around us, we can, and should, all learn to live together. I recommend this delightful picture book to all young readers!
