Your hand in my hand by Britta Teckentrup

Your handA tender tale told in verse that follows the two mice, hand in hand, on their wonderful journey through each of the seasons.

Britta Teckentrup‘s beautifully stylish illustrations complement Mark Sperring’s poignant lyrical verse as the two take their journey together through sun, rain, wind and snow.


A lovingly written rhyme, the story highlights how we can face adversity and enjoy each waking moment if we join forces. “Your hand in my hand…”

A perfect book to share with your young ones and one that you’ll come back to again and again.


The subtle, empathetic colour palette changes throughout the book, gently and calmly, take the reader through each season and draw you in to each page.

It also reminds us of the wonders we should take out of every day and even the simplest things we find can be wonderful treasures. It can be all too easy to forget these things.


We leave you with one of Teckentrup’s beautiful spreads. Your eyes can’t help but follow this rainbow across the pages.
