This book is a delightful, fresh look at a well-known story. It is told by a mouse, who is in each picture—my little children loved looking for it in these beautiful, colorful pictures. The pictures show a loving mother and older sister caring for a cute little baby, doing what they could to keep him safe. I'm not sure they would have been looking as happy and carefree in reality as in these pictures, but the story is lovely for young children.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley, and these are my honest thoughts about it.

3.5 stars. A re-telling of the Bible story of baby Moses and his sister Miriam. The Bible story faithfully follows the Bible account. The contextual story of Albert and the little mouse was cute as are the illustrations. The structure of the book implies there is a lesson to be learned, and the focus here is on Miriam as a role model for the little mouse. I wasn't clear what lesson the author wanted readers to hang onto, though - that little kids, and little mice, can do important things or that caring for others is an important job. The lesson didn't tie back well to the launch point for me. In general, though, this is a cute book to introduce young kids to Bible stories.

A lovely simple retelling of a well known story using the little mouse to engage the children. These kinds of stories always work well with the children and would be good with preschool sunday school classes. Lovely illustrations to go with the story

This is a cute take on the Bible story about Miriam watching her baby brother in the Nile River, ultimately saving her people. Albert learns that you don't have to be big to be mighty.  The illustrations were good but I think that there could be a greater emphasis on Albert. There were times we missed him on the page. My daughters are 7 and 4 and they both enjoyed the story. 

Thank you Net Galley for the opportunity to review this book for my honest opinion.

Albert is sharing the stories of the bible once again. We all need to know if we matter and if God has a purpose for us. Albert shares the story of Miriam the sister of Moses. How she made sure Moses was safe and protected.

These stories are sweet and every page has a little mouse that is part of the story. Can you find him? In finding him, you will be sure to find God's love as well.

A Special Thank you to Lion's Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review

This was such a sweet story! It gives children the opportunity to think about what else may have been happening in the story of Moses that isn’t included in the Bible story.

Albert and the Good Sister is a great introduction to the story of Moses. If you are a fan of Adventures of the Book of Virtues you will love the series of Albert books too. The illustrations are lovely and the stories are important for young minds.

I thought that this book was really good!

Albert and the Good Sister is a retelling of the Bible story of Moses and it is told from the view of Albert, a mouse!  We really enjoyed the story and I thought that the illustrations were great too – a fab little read!

Albert and the good sister  by Richard little Dale is one of my favorite children’s stories. I love how the author is able to tell Bible stories and the way the children can listen and be entertained. This is a sweet and fun story about miceAnd their ancestors who were present at the time the Bible stories took place. This would make a wonderful gift for any child.

Thank you so much to NetGalley and Lion Hudson Ltd for the e-arc copy to read and review. 

This was just precious, it was such a sweet and beautiful story. The illustrations was so vibrant and beautiful and the story told in such a nice way. 

I love that the story was told more from Miriam’s side. Albert the mouse wanted to help the field mouse feel better so told of the great bravery of Miriam, Moses big sister and how she was small but had to do a very big thing. 

I really enjoyed getting to read this and reading the story of baby Moses in a different perspective. I loved all the illustrations and I love how easy this story is for children to understand. It’s a perfect biblical book for young children.
