Exploring the Characters


Read or listen to the story. Use the link HERE


Pause the video or stop reading after the mouse meets each animal and ask your child:


  • How do you think the mouse feels each time he first meets an animal?
  • Why does he talk about the Gruffalo like this?
  • How do those descriptions make each of the animals feel?
  • How does this change from when they first saw the mouse?
  • What does the mouse want the animals to think? Why?
  • How do you think the mouse feels as he walks away each time?


Ask your grown up to write what you think each character is thinking in the story.
