About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

Little Mole Goes to School by Glenys Nellist

Little Mole Goes to School

It's Little Mole's first day of school, and he's nervous. What if he is the last to know his alphabet? What if he's not good at anything? With a good bit of anxiety, Little Mole heads to class and begins to compare himself to his peers. How will he ever measure up? But soon a crisis on the playground reveals that he has everything he needs in his own two paws to save the day. In this third installment of the Little Mole series, author Glenys Nellist and illustrator Sally Garland spin another endearing tale of the beloved Little Mole, his encouraging mama, and his forest friends. Children will relate to Little Mole's feelings of self-doubt, will cheer him on when he discovers his unique gifts and talents, and will be inspired to confront their own insecurities and celebrate what they have to offer, too.



Most children love stories with animals and this book has one of the cutest that I've seen! Little Mole is going to school for the first time and he's very concerned. He's worried that he can't see or hear as well as the other students, and he may not know his alphabet like the others. It doesn't take long for Little Mole to understand that he has his own special talents and that he will be fine with his new friends. This special little animal is a delightful example of love, kindness, and bravery!

This is the third book featuring the talents of author Glenys Nellist and illustrator Sally Garland, and they've once again given children a book that is both entertaining and educational. Children learn the special characteristics of moles and they're also reminded that God has given special gifts and talents to both animals and people. Little Mole Goes to School is the perfect book for children entering school for the first time, and it also offers encouragement and affirmation for returning students. It's the perfect book for families to read together and it would also be a wonderful addition to a school library.

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review, and I am voluntarily sharing my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I'm an author of over twenty books for children, including the best-selling Twas The Evening of Christmas, The Wonder That is You, and two popular series: Love Letters from God and Snuggle Time. I've also written Little Mole Finds Hope and Little Mole's Christmas Gift. Here's my little story...

Although I live in Michigan, USA, I was born and raised in a little village in northern England. Four long decades later, I would find myself living across the pond, married to a wonderful man, mum to four adult children and three daughters-in-law, and grandma to three bouncing boys and one gorgeous girl. And as if all that wasn’t blessing enough, I somehow became an author, despite giving up on my first book halfway through.

And if you would have told me then, that this book would one day become a series, that I would begin a second series, and a third… I never would have believed you. The only possible explanation is that our great God is able to do immeasurably more than all I could ever ask or possibly imagine.
