Students enrolled in Kathryn Minerva’s first grade class at Slocum Elementary School recently presented their own telling of the popular Arnold Lobel book, “Mouse Soup,” for attending family members and friends after months of rehearsing their lines in the classroom setting. In the play, a clever mouse tells a trickster weasel four silly stories about bees, stones, loud crickets and a thorn bush in an effort to distract him. The weasel leaves his house to collect these ingredients to make “Mouse Soup,” but upon returning with the collected ingredients, he finds that mouse nowhere to be found, proving that he successfully outdid the weasel.
