Don’t You Wish You Persevered Like This?

3 Nov

Mice have a long history of bravery and motivation in books (think The Tale of DesperauxRalph, the Motorcycle Mouse, and Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH). 

Maybe that stereotype comes from real life…

Think about the fun you could have brainstorming the character traits you could assign to this mouse: motivated, perseverant, strategic, determined.   My husband and I actually cheered out loud when the mouse made it.  Can you remember a time you worked this hard for something?
