The Mole Sisters and Moonlit Night by Roslyn Schwartz


The Mole Sisters and Moonlit Night by Roslyn Schwartz

On a beautiful moonlit night the Mole sisters gaze into the sky. When a brilliant shooting star blazes past, they make a wish together, and soon they are picturing the world from a wonderful moon vista. On a moonlit night anything can happen! The Mole Sisters are full of fun, wonderful imagination, and quiet confidence. Their unfaltering optimism is contagious and will bring smiles to faces everywhere. These are small creatures with very big hearts!


From the very opening line, the optimism of the sisters is readily apparent. The positive mood and upbeat language continue throughout the short stories. The characters are likeable because they are confident yet caring... The series is definitely geared to young readers. The small size of the books (6 x 6 ) and the even tinier illustrations (3 x 2.5 ) make them far better suited for lap reading than group story-times. Minimal text is used on each page (sometimes a single word), and the action moves very quickly. Schwartz's illustrations actually tell the tale. The blended colours and many details in her drawings are very appealing. Preschoolers will enjoy these mini-adventures. The stories end on a positive note, emphasizing their message that life is wonderful when shared with a friend. Recommended.--Lisa Sykes Canadian Materials (02/01/2002)
