Book Review – Your Hand in My Hand

“The world’s full of wonders, there’s so much to see. I’ll find them with you if you find them with me.”

I adored this book – from the gorgeous illustrations to the lovely lyrical rhyming text – a beautiful winter book that is perfect for bedtime.

“Your hand in my hand is where it belongs. Your hand in my hand as we walk along.”

The story follows a little mouse and a big mouse as they wander through the winter forrest – sharing time together. It is simple and sweet, but super effective. They interact with lots of different animals and look around the lovely landscape together.

It makes for a nice quick read before bedtime with adorable and colourful illustrations that will leave you feeling wistful.

This stunning book will suit bubs and children of any age and is a lovely sweet way to send them off to dreamland and make you feel all warm and fuzzy afterwards – and remind you to hold their hand a little bit tighter the next time you go for a walk.
