|A mouse family (the Squeaks) lives quietly in a house inhabited by humans. But when the mice children, Billy Blue and Sally Rose, are discovered by the humans, their lives become filled with daily upset. Not wanting to bother their parents, Billy Blue eats to push down his distress, while Sally Rose is so anxious she can't nibble a thing. Eventually they realize the importance of talking about feelings and learn to find comfort in healthy ways. This is a good first book to help children understand different feelings, learn to talk about them, and use means other than food to express them.
