    This book make me feel a little sad. I felt sorry for the animals out on the cold winter night. I felt sorry when they all found lonely although warm places to shelter from the wind and cold. I was so happy when the little mice all got back together to celebrate with friends. If you like to pair books with aromatherapy as much as I do, I think the perfect pairing for this book would be doTERRA's Holiday Peace. You can only buy it around Christmas time.

Do you look for those who might be out in the cold and bring them in to your circle of warmth? Have you ever been out in the cold and brought into someone's circle of warmth? Tell me about it. Do you have a warm house and plenty of food? When's the last time you thanked someone for it? Who would you thank?

A rhyming, counting (count down), book that celebrates togetherness during the holidays. 10 mice are huddled together in the snow, and one by one they find shelter. But it's sad to be alone at Christmas, so the mice brave the weather to get back together and after their festivities, one spies a place where they can all snuggle up away from the weather. Some of the illustrations seem a little out of focus (hazy, air-brushed) in places (I kept adjusting my glasses - is it just me?).

    I loved the illustrations in this book, they were beautiful. I also liked the rythm of this story, it flowed nicely. I was surprised to see it was a counting book as the title and the cover have no indication. I think I liked it more finding this out because it grabbed my kids attention right away when counting was involved. I can't put my finger on it, but i kept thinking this book layout didn't match it's story quite right, I think i would have done the placement of the pages a little differen I loved the illustrations in this book, they were beautiful.

    When you think of Christmas, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Rodents, of course! Ok, at first, it may not seem like rodents and Christmas go together, but as you'll see from this story ... mice and Christmas do go together. In fact, mice make tasty Christmas treats. Chocolate mice. Not the mice in the story. Read the rest of my review at Opening a Can of Bookworms. When you think of Christmas, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Rodents, of course!

    This story was cute enough, but the whole "ten little mice out freezing in the cold" tone of the story was kind of a bummer for me. The ending is nice, but the rest of it just seems like a little bit of a downer. With all of the Christmas and winter picture books out there, you can definitely find better.

    A counting story for Christmas. The mice want to find a dry place to pass the night and they do so one by one. However, they want to spend the holiday together even more. They come together and find a place they share for the holiday.

    A sweet story paired with outstanding illustrations make this book a must read! The 10 mice want to stay warm but it seems that none of the warm spots on this cold winter night are big enough for all of them. Might even be one to buy for your home collection.

    The story is sweet and the illustrations are fitting for the mood and season. Some of the rhymes, however, were weird for me. It's totally a personal thing, but I hate it when part of a couplet is in the middle of a sentence. Just makes it hard to read very smoothly.

    On a cold Christmas eve a family of ten mice each find an individual place to stay warm, and out of the elements. But they all soon realize that they would rather be cold together than spend it warm and alone.

    This beautiful Christmas book by Eileen Spinelli is a story of ten cold mice who leave their huddle one at a time to find shelter from the storm. Each does indeed find a place of refuge, but in the end they realize something even more important then enjoying a cozy dwelling alone.

    I loved this book and so have my elementary students. It is a counting book about some mice who are searching for a warm spot on Christmas, but then decide that the best place to be at Christmas is together.
