This is a very sweet book about the love between a parent and child.
The sentiment will appeal to the adult reader:
‘With your hand in my hand when winter takes hold, We’ll snuggle up closer and won’t feel the cold.
We’ll walk through the seasons, untouched by the frost. With your hand in my hand….we’ll never feel lost.’
The illustrations, provided by the wonderful Britta Teckentrup, will entrance a little person as the mice share the change in seasons with each other. And the way you would read this – calmly, soothingly with its flawless rhyming text – is also something they would enjoy.
Like Guess How Much I Love You, this would make a fantastic present for a new baby or Christening present – or if you are all grown up, for your own mum or dad to remind them how much you appreciate them.
