Just in time for Christmas - this beautiful illustrated and thoughtful read about the birth of Jesus thru the eyes of a mouse. Toddlers will relate easily to the magnitude of this special day for Christians and their families. It brings reason for the season in clear focus. Highly recommend. A special thank you to Books Go Social and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

This is a unique telling of the story of the birth of Christ as that of the observation of a mouse, Marvin Mouse, living in the stable in Bethlehem. With the sweet telling of the story and nice pictures, it makes for a great book for young children, giving them something to imagine, that of a mouse in the stable on that night seeing the Baby, Kings, and angels. Marcin Mouse makes a decision to follow the Baby King after seeing the birth. At the end of the book, questions to ponder and Luke 2 are included giving the background to the story and great for children of all ages as well as adults. This would make a great gift for children. I received a download copy of the book from BooksGoSocial and NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are mine only.

Marvin Mouse is a tiny mouse who lives in a barn, in that barn is a baby born, a king. A sweet book about our King. A story about your first steps to follow this King. Bright illustrations, shiny stars and light will shine into your hart. First book for the little ones, to tell the story about Jesus. I really love the story about Jesus when he was born and i am glad to read this book. When He was born, there was hope!

The most amazing part of this book, quite honestly, is the illustrations. The textures and details in these pictures are beautiful. There is nothing wrong with the story, either, but due to the way the words are set on the page, I kept expecting the lines to rhyme. Perhaps they are intended to be a psalm though, and not a poem? If this is the case, what a wonderful way to praise the newborn king. I would like to thank #NetGalley and #BooksGoSocial for allowing me to read an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Marvin Mouse Meets the Baby King by Michelle L. Hoy is cute retelling of the birth of Jesus. The illustrations are beautiful. Marvin Mouse Meets the Baby King tells the CHRISTmas Story from what Marvin Mouse sees the night Jesus is born. I love the way Marvin Mouse sees the importance of Jesus' Birth and how Marvin decides to follow Jesus all the days of his life. I highly recommend this book and believe it would be a perfect edition to anyone's Christmas library. Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read this book! (My review is also on Goodreads.)

A little twist called Marvin! A little twist (in the story of the birth of Jesus) called Marvin the Mouse. If there had been a talking mouse the day Jesus was born, what would he have said? Let Marvin tell you. A beautiful illustrated children's book about the birth of Christ through the eyes of a little new believer. Supported by scriptures, it will spark children's curiosity and interest and be the perfect start to important discussion and teaching. I highly recommend it. I received a free copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.
