5starP. I don't believe this book can really be explained by radical change. There is no change in format or form from beginning reader books through history (Dr. Seuss, Frog and Toad). I don't believe their are really any new perspectives or pushed boundaries either. It is simply a story about

anthropomorphic animals like many, many others. It's a good story, though.

Good book for those who are just starting to enjoy chapter books. This story has a great and easy to read story line. It is also quite funny. This book my be good to read to students if they need to understand what a plot entails. Each chapter is broken up by showing the reader there is a problem,

this would give the students the opportunity to guess what the solution to the problem might be. Good for using words to describe a thing. Also a good book to show that people or animals can help each other, and not everyone is good at everything.

Mouse and Mole decide to make a book about birds. Illustrations, done in a colorful crayon style, will appeal to young readers with their childlike simplicity. Readers will laugh at Mouse and Mole as they try to create their book, with some good ideas…and some bad. The end will make everyone

smile, as both characters find a way to shine in their own way, showing that everyone has his or her own strengths. The two are never daunted by the problems that arise, instead thinking of ways around them, sometimes with hilarious results, but always working together as friends. The lightness and easiness will make this an enjoyable read for younger children, while the breakup into four connected tales will allow them to feel like they are reading a more advanced book and give them a sense of accomplishment upon completion.

This would be an effective guided reading selection to use during a unit on living things, habitats, conservation, etc. Newly independent readers will be proud to read this fun book to others.

A cute book. Not the winner of the Geisel Award but still a very good early chapter book.

This is a book about a mouse and mole that seek to create a picture book about birds. The only problem is that they can't seem to get close enough to any of the birds to draw their pictures. They devise a plan, to dress up as birds because it appears as though birds are not afraid of other birds.

It teaches a bit about birds and their habitats. In the end of the book they find that mouse is a really good artist and mole is much better with his words and writing. So they decide to make one book together. This is an early reader chapter book. USE: education on birds and habitat; team work.

For an 'Early Reader' there were some awfully challenging words. But other than that, it fits all the parameters. It's a cute friendship story between small animals, short sentences, short 'chapters,' bright sweet pictures, closer to the size of a novel than a picture-book, and part of a series. A

charming example of a winning formula.

This one I found especially delightful because the friends are birders - as are my parents.
