By Melissa Carter and Mika Rekai
Mouse and Mole decide to celebrate spring by drawing and writing their own bird books. But their plans seems foiled when the birds fly away as the two artists approach, until Mouse comes up with a clever disguise. The beautiful pictures keep it approachable, and the sweet story encourages nature appreciation.
"I like this book because it has chapters, pictures and arts and crafts ideas. I told my mom I want to make a bird shirt out of old clothes, like Mouse and Mole, but she said she'd have to think about it." - Charlotte, 6, Toronto
