Book Reviews

As most parents can attest, once rules are set, children will constantly push the boundaries of those rules. That?s one lesson Archibald Mouse learns the hard way in Sylvia Lieberman?s children?s book Archibald?s Swiss Cheese Mountain–the story of a cute mouse getting his first taste of independence as Momma Mouse allows him to venture out of their mouse hole and into a grocery store to forage for food.

Archibald mouse soon discovers a towering hunk of cheese and dreams of becoming the King of Swiss Cheese Mountain, but his mother warns him that what seems easy is not always the most desirable. Archibald ignores her advice, finds himself in several predicaments, and ultimately appreciates the wisdom behind Momma?s teachings.
