We've met this sweet, child-like character, Little Mole, previously in Little Mole Finds Hope and Little Mole's Christmas Gift. Author Glenys Nellist and illustrator Sally Garland team up again with the new book Little Mole Goes to School. He is a worrier, as many of us are. True to the characteristics of a real mole, Little Mole can't see well. He is envious of Little Squirrel who has excellent vision, and other animals who have skills and characteristics he lacks. But Little Mole is given the opportunity to show his strength when they get trapped in a tunnel. He finds out that everyone is good at different things. This precious story explores the anxiety children feel when starting school and includes a parents page to address this important issue. Little Mole was hesitant about starting school, but by the end of the book, he can't wait to go back the next day. This a great book to help children prepare for that important milestone. I was asked to help promote this book and will receive a free copy, but I also preordered this book for a special child in my life. I highly recommend it! -- Amy Houts, author of Christian Q&A Book for Kids
