Mouse and Mole: Fine Feathered Friends is a fun book filled with colorful pictures, action words, and teachable moments. The birds are drawn to look like real birds (including a Cardinal, Blue Jay, Chickadee, and Goldfinch). No cartoonish stuff here!
As they read, children learn real sounds the birds make and can easily imitate them: per-chick-o-ree says the Goldfinch, queedle-queedle says the Blue Jay, chick-a-dee-dee-dee says the... you guessed it... Chickadee! If you're a homeschooler, this is the perfect book to add to a unit study on "Birds" er... "Fine Feathered Friends."
Throughout the story, Mouse and Mole have an adventure as they set out to go bird watching and create a Bird Book. After their adventure, Mole turns out to be "quite an artist," Mouse turns out to be "quite a poet," and the two of them end up with a wonderful idea... but in case you decide to purchase this book yourself, I won't give it away!
