A Friend for Mole by Nancy Armo

Mole comes out of his hole to check things out and then can't find the hole again.  He decides to take a nap and doesn't wake up until it's dark outside.  Oh no, now he'll never find it!

Peach Tree Publishers and Net Galley allowed me to read this picture book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 1st.

This is a delightful story with cute creatures.  Mole is small and hairy and hid in some bushes for his nap.  When Mole comes out from behind the bushes and meets the night, he also meets Wolf.  He's a pup and he loves the night but he's afraid of the day.  Mole tells him the day is fine but he is afraid of the night.  They decide to be friends and agree to help each other face their fears.

The illustrations are luscious.  Wolf takes Mole home and tells him he's doesn't live far away.  They agree to get together and play in the future.  Everything is better with a little help.  This was a very cute story that touched my heart.
