A beautiful, lyrical picture book about the love between a parent and child. And a celebration of the natural wonders of our world.
Your hand in my hand is where it belongs, Your hand in my hand as we walk along.
The world's full of wonders, there's so much to see. I'll find them with you if you find them with me.
Follow two little mice as they discover the world together, hand-in-hand, through the seasons. Splashing through puddles, gathering acorns and gazing at rainbows . . . Before finally snuggling up together in their cosy home.
This special story is perfect for sharing together at bedtime, or as a gift for a new baby.
Two speckled mice one big, one little wander together through a wooded landscape, beginning their walk under light snowfall and meandering throughout a cycle of seasons. A sweet, simple poem with a tone and cadence reminiscent of Oh, the Places You'll Go! emphasizes the strength and comfort that their relationship provides: "So, why waste a moment?/ There's no time to spare!/ With your hand in my hand,/ what wonders we'll share." Teckentrup's grainy landscapes introduce blooming flowers, rain showers, a rainbow, and a bevy of curious animals. As holly berries grow and snow falls again, the mice snuggle close, finally arriving in a cozy tree burrow. Readers anxious about changing circumstances should find solace in the message about unfaltering love and devotion, regardless of weather or season. Ages 3 5.
