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!

User Review  - Goodreads

My six-year-old son read this book by himself and understood it and liked it. He even understood and liked the unexpectedly sweet ending. The bright, colorful, and a bit cartoonish illustrations were a perfect match to the simple text. Read full review
