Synopsis

The Mole Sisters and Wavy Wheat by Roslyn Scwartz, Saoussan Askar

An adventure with the irresistible and irrepressible Mole Sisters. After starting out in a new direction, the Mole Sisters find themselves in the middle of a field of wavy wheat. Back and forth, up and down, the Mole Sisters play the time away, going everywhere they canincluding straight to bed at the end of their tiring day.

Reviews

Schwartz's pencil-colored illustrations significantly extend the simple text. The colors are soft and her backgrounds are muted shadings of color. Though the experience of being in a wheat field is outside of most young urban children's understanding, Schwartz's skillful use of onomatopoeia draws them into the experience. We hear the mole sisters

... and we know what they are doing by the sounds they make. The subtly of the text and illustrations of these gentle books will require child/adult interaction to obtain their maximum potential. The humor in the mole sisters

's endings reassure children that unknown objects can become part of their safe environment. [A] good book for preschoolers to share while sitting quietly with on their parent's lap. Recommended.--Kathleen Kirk Canadian Materials (10/04/2002)'

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
