Teacher looking for a similar book

I am a first grade teacher and I am starting my maps unit. I was looking for Mouse Views: What the Class Pet Say by Bruce McMillan. I could not find it through the online catalog and I was wondering if you have something similar to this book. The book is about the class pet mouse's perspective of the class room and the children are to identify the objects from this point of view. Thank you!

Copying the Buros Mental Measurments Yearbook (b1516390)

I have a library card issued by the Manchester District Library. I have to do a research paper for college, for which I will need to document / reference 3 test reviews from the 18th Buros Mental Measurments Yearbook (b1516390). My questions are: Is there any issue with copying these reviews? What is the cost for a copy? Can I add monies to my account at the library if I need more funds?
