Product Details


* “Have shovel, will dig. Such is the simplicity of young Mole’s experiences in this warm look at appreciating the small, often unexpected, joys in one’s life.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This simply told story has what it takes to entertain the youngest story-time audience: eye-catching illustrations; a straightforward, good-natured narrative with some well-placed repetitions; lots of digging; and a gratifying ending.”The Horn Book

 “Told with minimal text, this book celebrates friendship while quietly calling attention to the fact that treasure is relative.” School Library Journal

“The day that Mole gets his new shovel, he starts to dig for treasure despite his brother betting that he won’t find any.  The first things Mole finds is a twig (which a bird thinks is a treasure).  Digging further, he finds a shell (treasure to a snail), an acorn (treasure to a squirrel) and finally, another hole where a little mole pops up―a real treasure: a friend for Mole.”Kirkus Reviews
