   Annie Mouse Books



Anne M. Slanina, Ph.D.

       Author of The Adventures of Annie Mouse Series

Annie MouseGuardian Angel

Each book in the series explores the world through the eyes of a young child.  While the books together form a series, each has its own story line and the books can be enjoyed alone and in any order.

Like all young children, Annie is very literal and often misunderstands what adults are saying.   In our fast-paced world it is so easy to neglect to explain little things to children that adults take for granted.  All children see and hear troubling things happening around them, even if they are not experiencing these things in their own homes. Often, we think we are shielding children from things they are too young to understand, so we avoid discussing them.  At the same time, we are often confused by our children’s angry, hostile behaviors!   As much as we would like, it is unrealistic (and unhealthy) to think that we could shield them from all bad things.  Annie Mouse will help you start the discussion!  While sharing the books, discover how young children interpret adult language and situations and find out how Annie learns to cope with challenging life situations. 


To bring your family closer together, load up in the car, leave all electronics behind and take a road trip—explore Route 66 with Annie Mouse– the chapter book: Annie Mouse’s Route 66 Family Vacation and the companion book, Annie Mouse’s Route 66 Adventure: A Photo Journal!

 Annie Mouse’s Route 66 Family Vacation and Annie Mouse’s Route 66 Adventure:

A Photo Journal

Come join Annie Mouse and family as they put their cares and worries behind them and take their first family vacation! Follow along as they drive across the  country exploring Route 66 on their way to visit relatives in California.  The Mouse Family visits attractions in each of the  route’s 8 states, making friends and learning about the history of The Mother Road along the way. The Family Vacation book is a chapter book for children who are readers.  The Photo Journal, for all ages,  is a full-color picture book and features the author’s original  photography. It can also be used as a travel guide and a supplement to Social Studies text books. Each book can be enjoyed alone, but they are companion books.
