“Vincent was a mouse with boots on his feet, a hat on his head, and a house on his back.” Vincent always knew where he was meant to be. It seems this time when he set his house down he made many new friends, helping each one, and accepting each one for who they are. 

It’s a fun story with cutouts on the pages and beautiful illustrations. It builds upon itself and the mouse’s house gets bigger and more full. If you have the time to read it with the kiddos in your life you can reiterate the values of hospitality, acceptance, and generosity that are clearly portrayed in this book.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,” Matthew 25:35
