DELIGHTFUL KIDS BOOKS | BLOG TOUR | 'Little Mouse Helps Out' by Riikka Jäntti | 5* Book Review

Hi guys, and happy Thursday! Today I am very excited to be on blog tour, especially on a Thursday - the day of my children's book feature! 

Today the book I am going to be reviewing is Little Mouse Helps Out by Riikka Jäntti - a beautiful book with equally beautiful illustrations, and one that will quickly become your children's favourite! Jäntti has been dubbed Finland's answer to Judith Kerr, and the Judith Kerr books were my favourites when I was little, so when I saw this book I knew it was something I had to pick up!


Today is the day of publication, so I am so happy to be celebrating the publication of this wonderful book today!

I was kindly sent Little Mouse Helps Out by Scribe Publishing in exchange for an honest review :)


Intrigued? Check out the blurb here...



Little Mouse has a lot of things to do today … and he can do them all by himself!

It’s an exciting day for Little Mouse. His friend Pip is coming over to visit. But first, there are chores to do around the house, like cleaning, laundry, and cooking lunch. Little Mouse is determined to help Mummy Mouse with all of them. And after that — playtime!

The second picture book from well-loved Finnish author/illustrator Riikka Jäntti to feature Little Mouse — the small kid with the big personality — Little Mouse Helps Out is sure to become another read-aloud favourite. 

This is such a wonderful book to read aloud, and is told in such a lovely way that elucidates the joy of the small pleasures in life. Children will be able to relate to everyday tasks and a daily routine, and will delight in the mishaps Little Mouse finds himself in!

The illustrations are some of the best I've seen in a children's book - they are wonderfully simple but also gorgeously detailed - I want to live in Little Mouse's house!

The book also teaches vital lessons for children such as the importance of sharing, helping out with jobs and chores, and how much fun made-up games can be.

Overall this was a glorious book, and I would recommend this for all children aged 4 and up. However, this is also a great book to read aloud, to children of any age!
