Book Review: Little Mouse by Riikka Jäntti

Riikka Jäntti is an author and illustrator based in Helsinki whose work has been published in Swedish, Danish, Japanese, Chinese and English.

Little Mouse is a really sweet book that portrays a day in the life of a toddler. As all parents know, a toddler’s life can be quite busy and the day of Little Mouse is no exception.

The story shows all the classic scenarios that children and parents go through most days getting dressed, going to childcare, eating dinner and getting your child to eat vegetables, splashing in puddles, cleaning teeth and finally going to bed at night. Little Mouse has a very busy day indeed and there are many things to say NO to when you’re a toddler! Book Review: Little Mouse by Riikka Jantti A Mum Reviews

The book shows all the things parents and kids have been doing for years so the book feels very ageless. It could have been a book from my childhood or a new one and I love that about it.

The story is warm and full of humour and moments that both parents and kids will recognise from their own lives. Little Mouse is a very relatable little character with a big personality and Riikka Jäntti has done a great job capturing the wonder of childhood in this story about everyday life.
