Bartholomew's Blessing

HarperCollins, 2004

ages 4 - 8

“Bartholomew Mouse is very small.  He’s used to being ignored by all the other animals.  So when an angel arrives at his door one snowy night, Bartholomew can’t help but be surprised.  And when she invites him to be blessed by a newborn prince, he can hardly believe his tiny ears.  Is he really worthy of such an honor?  He must bring the perfect gift!

“Readers of all ages will delight in this story of a mouse who feels too small to count, but discovers the truth about himself in the light of a special baby’s smile.  With Margie Moore’s gentle, luminous illustrations, this intimate approach to the Christmas story by Stephanie S. Tolan is sure to become a classic.”
