✰✰✰✰ Christmas is coming, and there's plenty of excitement in the air. As the mice scamper about and get ready for the big day, Little Mouse wonders about the magic of Christmas. Is it the smell of spices in the air? Is it about throwing snowballs or sledding downhill? How about presents or decorating the tree? Little Mouse discovers the secret on Christmas Day with a little help from his mommy, and you will, too, when you read this book.
The Bottom Line: Soft watercolor illustrations and glitter add to the magic of this story celebrating the warmth of the season. I enjoyed the added textures of the book as well; however, some of the raised areas may peel off with frequent use. This charming book is perfect bedtime reading for little ones who can't wait for Christmas.
