Papa reads 'Mortimer's Christmas Manger' Karma Wilson

Mortimer leaves, feeling alone, and decides to pray and ask that baby to help him find a place for him to belong. His prayer is answered in a cute way. This is quickly becoming one of my top 2 or 3 Christmas books! Dec 02, Twinkle rated it really liked it Shelves: Mortimer is a little mouse looking for a new home. When he spies a Nativity setting he has no hesitation in throwing baby Jesus out of the manger and settling in for a long nap. He does this every night until one evening he hears the human family of the house reading the story of the first ever Christmas.

Feeling very sorry for his actions, Mortimer reinstates the baby Jesus to his rightful place in the manger, and prays that God will find him a new home. The next day he finds the most beautiful Mortimer is a little mouse looking for a new home. A tear rolled down his furry cheek. But I know where there is room. Dec 22, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: I found this one last year after the Christmas season and decided to add it to our collection. It is a fun read about Mortimer the mouse and how he is looking to find a new home that is warm and cozy instead of his cold one.

I love how he finds a new place and rearranges things to suit his needs, but then how he hears a story and realizes what house he took over.

I am checking out numerous children's Christmas books. I need 12 to wrap for the 12 days before Christmas and then my daughter's family can read a book a night before Christmas Sep 13, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: I started a Christmas picture book collection for my kids, and this was one of my first purchases a few years back. This is such a cute story - Mortimer dislikes his cold, lonely mouse hole and when he finds the manger scene, he thinks it is the perfect replacement- until he hears the story of the first Christmas.

Such a great way to talk about the Nativity. The writing is a little more lengthy than Wilson's Bear books, but still just as good.

Oct 09, Krissy rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: A Christmas story that is actually has to do with the Savior. Mortimer crawls out of his "cramped," "creepy" hole in search of a new home, when he comes upon the family manger. Not understanding what it is, he pushes out all the figurines and sleeps in the cozy hay in the manger, but each day, while he searches the house to crumbs to eat, he returns to the manger to find the figurines set up again.

And frustrated he drags them back out This year, my 5 year old has asked to read this book again and again. It is a really cute story highlighting the real reason for Christmas. It tells the story of Jesus birth in an accessible way and invites children to make room for Jesus in our Christmas celebration. I use a "mouse" voice for Mortimer and my son really likes the squeaky "no, no, no" when Mortimer can't find room in the stable for him. Jan 02, Marcelle rated it it was amazing.

This was my favorite from this year's pile of Christmas books. I love Wilson and Chapman and their expressive characters like Bear and Mole and Badger , and maybe it's because we just finally rid our house of its rodent residents and I'm feeling more generous toward mice, but I found this to be a wonderful glimpse of Christmas magic.

Jan 04, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: This was much cuter than I had anticipated. H had picked out a bunch of "junk" books while we were both browsing at the library. I let her borrow them all.

Cute Story A unique telling of the Christmas story providing a nice springboard into discussing God's provision for us and why he came to earth. The illustrations are nicely done. Apr 23, Kristin King rated it really liked it. Mortimer is looking for a place to sleep that is a little less bleak than his hole in the wall.

He finds it, but it's filled with little statues that have no meaning for him till later when all is revealed with a gift. I like all things mouse and Christmas like Santa Mouse, so of course I'd recommend this one. Dec 30, Dawn Teresa rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love this little book.

Unlike a lot of Christmas storybooks, this centered on understanding who the baby Jesus was and the significance of the manger. Dec 20, Emily rated it it was amazing. I loved this book! Probably because it deals with a nativity which is one of my favorite things at Christmas-time. But the illustrations are beautiful and the story is sweet about making room for Jesus.

Dec 09, Gena Lott rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is an adorable story with an intertwining of religious undertones which makes it a great story for small children to reinforce the meaning of Christmas. The illustrations are wonderful and Wilson is an accomplished story-teller that draws in the reader. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Karma Wilson grew up an only child of a single mother in the wilds of North Idaho. Way back then just past the stone age and somewhat before the era of computers there was no cable TV and if there had been Karma could not have recieved it.

Karma did the only sensible thing a lonely little girl could do…she read or played outdoors. She was even known to try to read while riding her bike down dirt roads, which she does not recommend as it is hazardous to the general well being of the bike, the rider, and more importantly the book.

Her reading preferences were fantasy C. Lewis, Terry Brooks, etc… and historical fiction L. Montgomery, Laura Ingalls Wilder, etc…. Those tastes have not changed much. Karma never considered writing as a profession because her mother was a professional writer which made it seem like mundane work. By that time Karma was a wife and the mother of three young children. Trips to the library with her kids were a combination of emotions…a good book meant fun for all!

Then a tax refund changed everything. With the money the family decided to invest in a computer. Karma was forced to learn to type. She wanted to put a few more good books on the library shelves and pay off that computer! Countless rejections and three years later Karma was finally accepted by book agent Steven Malk who had already rejected her once, which she never lets him forget. Her first book, Bear Snores On, was released in The computer was paid for! Since then Karma has had more than 30 books accepted for publication.
