Christmas Book Review: Chris Mouse and the Promise by Tina J. Lackey Adams

Travel back in time with Chris Mouse and listen while she relates her story as she remembers it of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.


Chris Mouse has just tucked her three little ones into bed when she notices the most beautiful bright shining star in the heavens. As she dreamily admires the star she remembers a prophecy she’s heard stories about since her youth. A magnificent star would mark the birth of the Savior. Could this be the promise she had waited her entire life to see? What happens next will change the world forever. Life for Chris Mouse will never be the same.

Chris Mouse and the Promise retells the Christmas story from the perspective of a mouse who was in the stable the night the Savior was born.  This is a very simple, condensed version of the Christmas story.  It should easily hold the interest of young children.  Another book that focuses on the real reason for the Christmas holiday, the promised birth of the Savior of the world.
