Dream Big, Little Mole
Little Mole is sad. All of the other animals seem to have an exciting, special skill. When she sets out to build the biggest hole ever, she sets off a chain of events which reveals her own, unexpected skill.
This is a very sweet picture book about accepting who you are, and appreciating your own skills without comparing yourself to others. Lots of children will relate to Little Mole's frustrations.
The story has a gentle rhyme scheme and is enjoyable to read aloud.
Pym's artwork is gentle and sweet, with lovely springtime colours and backgrounds teeming with flowers and life. There are also some very funny moments, and a great cast of characters to enjoy.
Dream Big, Little Mole is written by Tom Percival and illustrated by Christine Pym
