Mouse’s Christmas Gift
Ages: 4 to 8
Author: Mindy Baker, Dow Phumiruk (Illustrated by)
This sweet and poignant tale of hope captures the spirit of Christmas and the joy of doing for others during the holiday season.
In Mouse’s Christmas Gift, written by Mindy Baker and illustrated by artist Dow Phumiruk, one tiny church mouse must find a way to bring Christmas spirit to his little town when Parson gets sick and the usual Christmas Eve service is cancelled.
Mouse never gives up hope as he prepares the nativity set and lights a small candle in the window to signal the villagers. Little ones will see themselves in Mouse’s small act of faith, demonstrating that even the smallest creature can make a big difference. This adorable book, with a cover adorned with foil and glitter, captures the spirit of Christmas and the joy of doing for others during the holiday season.
Parents and children will read in anticipation as the book moves towards the night of Christmas Eve, when a small group of villagers gathers together in front of the darkened church. The hearts of little ones will pound just like Mouse’s does as he peers out the window and realizes … they came!
