Synopsis: When the time comes for Livingstone Mouse to find a nest of his own, he wants it to be in the best place. I have heard that China is very nice," his mom says. But where is China? Could it be in a noisy cupboard? A smelly old shoe? A picnic basket? Can a small mouse find China all by himself? Livingstone isn't sure, but he is determined to find out.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a "map" showing each of the places that Livingstone Mouse went during his search for China.
•  Make an explorer's hat for yourself like the one that Livingstone wore during his adventures.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
