A Christmas Picture Book Review

I love the Christmas season. The decorations, the songs, the food, the family traditions, and all the Christmas picture books!

I keep a little collection of them. The Christmas picture books were one of my favorite things to bring out at Christmas time and read with my kids when they were little. Even though they aren’t so little anymore I’ve kept my collection. And every once in a while I still add to it! I’m so happy I received a new book to add to the collection this year, Mouse’s Christmas Gift by Mindy Baker.

Mouse’s Christmas Gift draws you in with the heart and warmth of Christmas through story and beautiful illustrations. The spot varnish with glitter on the cover is gorgeous and sparkles like all things Christmas, making you want to gently open the cover like a treasured Christmas present and peek inside. This story of a little church mouse, who has a gift to bring community together in an unexpected way, reminds little readers how important it is to share the joy and hope of Christmas with those around us.

Mindy Baker and I met through twitter. She asked if I would like to review a copy of her new release and I’m so happy she did. I hope you love her new book as much as I do!

I love the idea of building a Christmas book library at home. Use each one for story time together as a type of book advent calendar –Read one special Christmas story each night until Christmas! Mouse’s Christmas Gift would make a great addition to your own collection or even a special Christmas present for your little one this season.

    “The spot varnish with glitter on the cover is gorgeous and sparkles like all things Christmas, making you want to gently open the cover like a treasured Christmas present and peek inside.” Love this quote! And what’s more, the warmth of the candle inside the frist-filled window draws you into the warmth inside the book too, I definitely am adding to my list! Thank you!
