Coming out March 1st, Nancy Armo’s story A Friend for Mole features an adorable Mole and his experience after he decides to leave his dark and cozy burrow.
Struggling with his overwhelming fear of the unknown, Mole stumbles across a friendly Wolf who is trying to conquer fears of his own. As they keep each other company and learn from one another, the two discover that friendship can be one of the strongest shields against fear.
Through Mole and Wolf’s experiences, young readers learn that differences aren’t necessarily weaknesses, and strengths are most powerful when used to help a friend. With simple but humorous text, and soft, bright illustrations to guide the way, this picture book is a gentle, fun journey through fear to friendship.
