Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-In Piece of Moss, the lively mole sisters encounter a self-proclaimed "dull" piece of moss yearning for a change of scenery. They decide to cheer it up by taking it on an adventure. After a fun-filled day, the two settle down for the night, covered by a protective moss blanket. In Rainy Day, even bad weather cannot spoil the sisters' sunny dispositions; after encountering a leak, which turns from a puddle to a pool, they make the most of the situation and jump in for a swim. The characters' joie de vivre is conveyed through their body movements and dialogue, rather than by their fairly expressionless faces, which often consist of only two black dots for eyes. The simple, sparse texts combined with the thumbnail colored-pencil illustrations make these books welcome additions.

Review

The book is just the right size for small hands to hold. Every page has a coloured illustration with a single sentence below it. Although the drawings are simple, the moles radiate happiness and fun whether they are jumping in puddles or rolling down a steep mossy bank. Highly Recommended.

Format: Hardcover
The beautiful illustrations are what orginally caught my eye while browsing at a bookshop. But after reading this short and clever book, I was hooked. It is funny and sweet and very original...almost poetic!
My five year old god-daughter visited me and fell in love with this book and wanted me to read it to her over and over. It's a wonderful bedtime read and I'd recommend all four books..."The Rainy Day" is great, but "Moss" is the best. Don't hesitate to buy the series...they are a delight and very fun to read aloud.

Format: Hardcover
Roslyn Schwartz has created a colorful summertime world full of lush illustrations and happy adventurings of two carefree moles. The text is simple but original. The fanciful plot is charming, amusing, and uplifting. Reads quickly, but packs a satisfying story into its few pages.

I love this series of books. The illustrations are wonderful and the stories are very Zen. We got this one and the one about the Question as gifts and have bought several others. My favorite is the Mole Sisters and the Rainy Day.
