On a windy spring day, what do Bear and Mole decide to do? Why, fly a kite, of course! But first they have to build one. They design, measure, and finally construct their kite. With a zoom, zoom, zoom the kite soars up, up, up in the air. But when a storm rumbles in—SNAP!--the kite string breaks! the chase is on as the two friends tear after their kite and find it in a tree, protecting a nest of baby birds from the rain. This sweet story makes a perfect read-aloud for young readers, and all will enjoy celebrating National Kite Month this spring!

Review: Kite Day: A Bear and Mole Story

User Review  - Beth - Goodreads

A good storytime book because of all the wonderful sounds. It would be very easy to include the kids. I like the muted colors in the background and bright flashy colors/textures on the bear, mole, and kite. Maybe an abrupt ending, but a cute and unexpected one. Read full review
