Valentine’s Mice by Kristin Schell of The Schell Cafe

I came down this morning to the nicest e-mail from foodie friend Kristin Schell over at The Schell Cafe in Texas. I couldn’t resist sharing.

Kristin made these adorable strawberry mice for her daughter’s Valentine’s Day kindergarten party. (They read The Biggest Valentine, which is about mice, at storytime).

  2. Absolutely charming, Jessie! Here's a wonderful poem you should share with your friend, so she can pass it along to her daughter's class. I taught elementary for a while, and my children always loved it: Mice I think mice are rather nice. Their tails are long, their faces small, They haven't any chins at all. Their ears are pink, their teeth are white, They run about the house at night. They nibble things they shouldn't touch, And no one seems to like them much. But I think mice are rather nice.
