FABULOUS FINISH: What a Treasure!

What a Treasure!
By Jane and Will Hillenbrand
Holiday House, 2007. Picture book.

Little Mole gets a new shovel and starts to dig for treasure. He finds a stick, which turns out to be a treasure to Bird who wants to use it for his nest. So Mole gives it to him. Mole also finds treasures for Snail and Squirrel, but will he ever find a treasure for himself?

This is a sweet, simple story about friendship and generosity with minimal text and gentle illustrations. A warm, happy read for young children about the simple joys in life and how treasure means different things to different people. This title is available in book and big book format.
