Mouse and Mole, Fine Feathered Friends by Wong Herbert Yee

Mouse and Mole go bird-watching.  Each time a bird draws near, Mole steps on a stick, or a leaf, creating a lot of noise, and scares the bird away.    

Through Mouse’s quick thinking, the two friends disguise themselves as birds, and build a nest. While sitting in the nest, many birds come and sit on their branch, and sing their songs. In this way, Mouse and Mole are able to observe the birds at a close distance.   When the day draws to a close, Mouse and Mole go home. Mole has made some beautiful drawings, while Mouse has written some clever poems. They decide to make a book together.  

This is a sweet, simple story of cooperation, ingenuity, and perseverance.  Nicely illustrated by the author, the simple text will be just right for those readers who are graduating from the beginning readers to early chapter books. Recommended for students in grades K-3.
