Watch out! Big Bro’s Coming!

Written by Jez Alborough

Suitable for: 5-7 years (Key stage 1)

Available braille grades: Grade 1, Grade 2

Mouse has some hot news! Big Bro is coming! He’s rough and tough and very big, he says. As the news spreads from animal to animal Big Bro achieves legendary status, until he arrives. He is after all just another mouse.

Listen to an audio clip

Peering out of the leaves there are five jungle creatures: a brightly coloured parrot, an elephant, a chimpanzee, a green and yellow frog and a tiny little mouse! I'll explain them in more detail soon, but one thing I'll tell you now is that they all look very frightened. There are lots of things to be frightened of in the jungle, like lions, tigers and snakes, so shall we read the book and find out?
Turn over the cover and we'll meet two of these creatures in our first Feely Picture. Run your hands all over it - can you feel them both? Move your hands to the top one. This is the tiny grey mouse: he's facing sideways, running to the right.
