Review: Albert gathers the mice for another important story, as one little mouse was bored of his field life and wanting to be free. His story connects perfectly with the mouse’s feelings.
As a young man wanted to leave home with the money his dad saved for him, he ventures out but soon learns that life isn’t so free, fun or easy. When people want him for his money, it leaves him having to learn a hard lesson.
The illustrations as always are so vibrant and beautiful, with the cute mice in ever part of the story. This biblical series is always a perfect place to start with teaching your children, they learn the stories in bite size pieces and in a fun, engaging and easy to follow way.
I adore reading this series, the stories are beautiful with great lessons, the illustrations always so vibrant and the mice always perfectly adorable.
