Children's Book with Plush Christmas Tree Ornament

Christmas is coming!

No time to dilly-dally!

All the grownups are busy taking care of the BIG things: the parties, the food, the presents.

But who will take care of the little things?

Why, someone very little, of course!

Every year, our little mouse is busy taking care of all the small things that bring joy.

He makes the ornaments all shiny, he tucks baby Jesus into the manger, he brings marshmallows for our hot cocoa; sometimes we even find him taste testing the cookies!

Why a mouse?

Testimonials

Our family has found a new tradition in getting this book. We have four kids ages 2-9 and they all love this book! It tells about a mouse and even though he is small the things he does are important. It doesn’t matter the size of a person or good deed because all people matter. We also ordered the woolen mouse in the hammock to go along with the book. At the back of the book it explains how women in Nepal make the woolen mouse and proceeds from that mouse go back to them. We definitely recommend this book and the corresponding mouse.

Really enjoyed reading this with my little ones. It's such a sweet tale and it made us feel very festive as well as looking forward to Christmas already!

I loved the added extras at the end- the poem and the details behind the story!

I LOVE the illustrations too, so bright and colourful and really brought the magic of Christmas to life. Such a sweet book.

This book is just the sweetest most precious book we have seen in a while! I bought one for our children and for other little kids who are close to our hearts! It’s a beautiful reminder that you are never too small to make a big difference! Love it!!!

“The Mouse in the Hammock, A Christmas Tale” is a sweet story that helps to bring the focus back to what the true meaning of Christmas really is - Jesus and doing for others! 🎄 The message that you’re never too little to make a big difference is simple, meaningful, and easy for our little ones to apply. 🐭🥰 And seeing the “pay it forward” and “give back” impacts at the end of the book are so sweet! We love that by purchasing this book we are not only able to teach our children a beautiful message, but also make an impact by helping to provide dignified jobs in Nepal and help provide for the children in the Haitian orphanage. 🌎♥️🌏 Mouse and his hammock are super cute and we can’t wait to hang ours in the tree. And who knows...our little Mouse and his hammock might need to stay out all year round! ♥️🐭🎄

My 5 year old son is obsessed with the mouse ornament and the story! He makes up stories every morning about what the mouse did that night and he thinks the mouse ate his apple slices the other day, lol! He thinks he left them too close to the tree and mouse thought they were for him. I didn't tell him his sister did it ;-)

Move over Elf on the Shelf - make way for this precious little Mouse in the Hammock! Sweet story, good message, beautifully illustrated, and a cute fairtrade, handmade ornament that gives back! It’s a win, win!

I bought two of these book and mouse doll sets for Christmas as gifts. It is good story to encourage children to be little helpers. I was also pleased to learn that some of the money from the purchase is used to support orphanages in Haiti, and to fund fair pay for work for women in India.

Such a sweet book! Perfect for all families during the holidays. I love the idea of a helper instead of a mess maker.
