Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse

Story and Illustrations by Kevin Henkes

This book is about a mouse named Lilly who thinks her teacher is the best teacher ever. One day, she goes shopping and gets a few new accessories. She brings them to school, but has difficulties keeping them put away until sharing time, so her teacher takes them until sharing time. Lilly then decides her teacher is the meanest teacher ever. Follow Lilly to see what her final opinion of her teacher ends up being.

I give this book 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. I give it 4 1/2 stars because it has great illustrations and a great plot line, but it is almost too long of a quick sit down of a story.
