Caring Nel


Nel is challenged when a ghastly, greedy cockroach spies her sleeping babies and wants them to become his next meal. Bravely Nel confronts him and questions his intentions. But an unexpected response from the cockroach challenges her beliefs. Nel is a very caring and compassionate creature but she learns that perhaps even the scariest of creatures might also have a heart. This Brown Mouse story has unpredictable twists and turns.

Most importantly, Nel learns that caring for others involves more than she first thought.
