Book review: A Friend for Mole, by Nancy Armo

Armo, Nancy. A Friend for Mole. Peachtree, 2016. $16.95. ISBN 9781561458653. Unpaged. Ages 2-6. P8Q7

Mole gets disoriented when he ventures out above ground. He finds a hiding place under a bush, and meets Wolf, who is afraid of the dark. They make a plan to help each other, and while passing the time become fast friends. The simple watercolor illustrations aren’t too busy on the page and make following the story from a distance an easy thing. Even the end papers are cute! Children who understand being afraid of something will like this sweet story.

VERDICT: Armo’s book will be a popular checkout among parents with young children. It will make a good bedtime story.
