A Mouse lays down on the grass on a bright sunny day. The quiet of this moment is interrupted by a series of animals and insects, all asking her to move. It seems there is no place for her.
Suddenly, a bird with a broken wing cries for help. The Mouse helps him, and the two become friends, and the little Bird will be the one who teaches the Mouse to stand for her rights.
A story for all ages about empathy, generosity, the need to respect others, and defend our space.
Because there is room for everyone!
