Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
Bella, the youngest mouse in her loving family, has lots of questions about Christmas and Santa. As Bella helps her Papa, Granny, and Mama to mail cards, make cookies, and decorate the Christmas tree, she is curious to know when Christmas is coming and when Santa will be on his way. Very young children will relate to this story and enjoy the excitement of the bright illustrations brimming with Christmas wreaths, snowmen, and trees strung with tinsel. On the final page of this small book, there is a tab for children to pull down so that they can pop out a picture of Santa's sleigh and his team of reindeer flying through the night sky outside of little Bella's bedroom window. This small sturdy book will be a holiday favorite for the youngest readers; it is a book that they will enjoy looking at over and over again because of the warm, detailed illustrations that make Bella and her mouse family so appealing. Reviewer: Susan Borges
School Library Journal

PreS-In this sweet board book, Bella helps her mouse family get ready for Christmas, continually asking when Santa will come. The answer is always "soon"-until finally it's Christmas Eve and Santa is on his way. Minimal childlike text, soft and cozy illustrations, and a pop-up scene on the last page make this an adequate addition.-Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
