This story is a part of the "Stories for Overwhelm" Collection — three stories about sensitive people managing the stresses of a busy, fast-paced world. Each story follows a young character experiencing some type of overwhelm, but concludes with helpful solutions and a feeling of ease and confidence.
This story comes from the "Junkyard Tales" Series.
This story features a little mouse named Newberry who is celebrating his second birthday. Although Newberry's friends and family are excited about the spectacular birthday event they have planned, the little mouse prefers things that are small, quiet and slow. Luckily, one of the Junkyard friends notices this and creates something special that matches Newberry's speed.
