Then the boys realise that she is a caring person and they invite her to
Chester’s house to play. They learn that she likes many of the things they like,

In class the children drew a picture of the story and identified one of the
IB attributes that they felt were displayed by the characters. The main one
was being caring to others, but Miyu and Ouka also felt that the mice were being
risk-takers because they tried something new by playing with a new person. And
that they were principled because they did right thing by welcoming a new child
into their friendship circle. Koumei liked the way the boys showed communication
skills by talking nicely to Lilly.
