Ages 3-5. The adorable Mole Sisters are back in new adventures that illustrate how exciting the world can be. In Blue Egg, the sisters are looking for something, but they don't know what: "We'll know it when we see it." In the meantime, they have a grand time exploring a hollowed-out tree and playing in a bird's nest. When they spot a blue egg, broken just about in half, they know they've found their special something. The closing scene shows the happy twosome using their newfound treasure in a unique way--as a swing. Moonlit Night finds the sisters canoeing. When they spy a shooting star, they push their furry snouts together, make a wish--and wind up on the moon! Schwartz packs a lot of fuzzy warmth into these small, square packages. The delightful colored-pencil illustrations are even smaller, but the Mole Sisters' enthusiasm and zest for life shine through in a big way. Their ability to find joy and excitement in their everyday surroundings will motivate preschoolers to do the same. Lauren Peterson
