It's Mother's Day and three little mice wake up before the sun rises to go collect their gifts for mother. Biggest Mouse is getting her a dandelion weed, Middle Mouse picks a strawberry, and Little Mouse wants to give her honeysuckle, but a cat is out protecting the house where the honeysuckle grows. In the end, Little Mouse shares a different, better gift with his mother---a beautiful song. All three mice learn that the best and most important gift their mother could receive is the gift of their love.
It's Mother's Day and the three mouse brothers, Biggest, Middle, and Little, have only a short time to get their presents.
