The year is 1 BC and times are tough when you're a mouse living in a squeaky-clean Jewish temple. But little Mo finds food and a friend when he meets a kind, young woman. Never leaving his humble hero's side, Mo travels with Mary as she returns to her hometown. In Nazareth, Mo shares Mary's joy at one of the most extraordinary events of all time. Mo the Mouse is a tiny virtue hero of HUMILITY. He invites readers to delight in the humble joy of his hero Mary. They both know the huge value of being small.


The Tiny Virtue Heroes are a series of books with animal and insect characters who empower virtue and character in kids. These stories are fresh, fun, and enjoyable to read, and the back pages provide a mini-curriculum on how children can live with virtue.

Barb Szyszkiewicz Book Review for - Small but Mighty Mentors for Children

'A Mouse and a Miracle,' is the first in the Tiny Virtue Heroes series of children's books. Capitalizing on children's fascination with collectible characters (gotta catch 'em all!) and parents' wish that those characters had superpowers that would influence their children toward the good, Cathy Gilmore introduces the Tiny Virtue Heroes. The Tiny Virtue Heroes are the stars of a picture-book series that begins with A Mouse and a Miracle, the story of Mo the Mouse, the Tiny Virtue Hero of Humility.The book ends with a little note from Mo to the reader, inviting them to consider him their "play-time or pray-time partner." I love how this reinforces that we shouldn't separate our spiritual life from other aspects of our life. Read More
