Mickey Mouse's Birthday!

By Mary L. Bushong
1     We all know who Mickey Mouse is. You might have toys or pictures of him. You have seen cartoons or movies that feature him. Do you know how he was created?
 
2     Mickey Mouse was created by a man named Walt Disney. Walt liked to draw even as a boy. He practiced and learned more and more. When he was grown, he started drawing and making short cartoon movies. Early in 1927, Walt was returning to California from New York City on a business trip. In those days, there weren't any airlines like we have now. Walt and his wife traveled by train.
 
3     While they traveled, Walt began to draw a funny little mouse. He had been thinking about it for a long time. He planned to call the mouse Mortimer, but Mrs. Disney did not like that. She thought Mickey would be a better name.
