Little Mouse has a long time to wait for Christmas! Luckily he has lots of things to do to get ready!
It’s almost Christmas and Little Mouse is looking forward to celebrating with Mummy Mouse and Grandpa and Grandma Mouse. But Christmas Eve feels very far away and Little Mouse is very impatient!
Fortunately there are all kinds of things for Little Mouse to do, like cooking gingerbread and choosing just the right Christmas tree.
The curious and lively toddler Little Mouse is back in this beautifully Scandinavian Christmas story by Finnish author/illustrator Riikka Jäntti.
This is undoubtedly my favourite Little Mouse book so far. Jäntti captures perfectly what makes children excited for Christmas, and I loved all the details like the darkness in the mornings and afternoons, advent calendars, gingerbread, and falling asleep to cartoons on the sofa.
The illustrations are of course perfect in every way, and add so much to the story. Everything looks so warm and cosy <3
The impatience of Little Mouse for Christmas day to come is pretty much every young child, and the jobs that Mummy Mouse gives Little Mouse is perfect inspiration for parents coping with overexcited children during the holidays!
Little Mouse's Christmas is the perfect bedtime story for kids of all ages during the run-up to Christmas, and it's sure to get even the adults excited too!
