Kindergarten-Grade 2—Mole, Rabbit, Squirrel, and Hedgehog return for another cozy story. Mole has not heard from Rabbit for a while, so he decides to visit her. Since it's been raining for days, he decides to tunnel underground to her home. Along the way, he encounters Squirrel and Hedgehog, who follow the intrepid digger beneath the earth in order to stay dry. Meanwhile, Rabbit is at home with a cold and is also missing her pals. Just as she is hoping that someone would drop in to see her, Mole and the others burrow through the ceiling and do exactly that. When they realize that she is feeling poorly, Squirrel brings her some nuts and Hedgehog fetches some dry leaves to refresh her bed. But what does Mole bring? Why, he brought Rabbit's friends, which is the best gift of all. Although the story's outcome may be obvious to adults, children will enjoy this simple tale of friendship. Cabban's cuddly animals drawn in a palette of soft, autumn watercolors reinforce the warm and fuzzy feeling of Emmett's story. A pleasant selection for fall storytimes and a good choice for beginning readers.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
