Little Mole is back, and this time he's off to school in an encouraging story about being yourself that makes this the perfect book for any child going back to school this year.

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.

Glenys Nellist has long been one of my favorite picture book writers. And here, her approach to talking about fear, worries, and insecurities is both practical and profound.

Matthew Paul Turner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Is God Like? as well as When God Made You

Lark sings. Mole digs. Hare listens. Kids will learn about the natural world as well as about overcoming their fears in this sweet story. I love it!

Jennifer Grant, author of Maybe God Is Like That Too

Little Mole Goes to School is a treat for any kid facing down school-day nerves or who's ever felt they weren't as smart or ready as the other kids. This delightful story celebrates both our individual giftedness and the joy of offering our gifts to the collective good.

Caryn Rivadeneira, author of Edward and Annie: A Penguin Adventure

This book ushers children into a new school year with joy and hope, while simultaneously offering a gentle way to help them work through any anxiety and fear about the new year. This is a great gift for a child who is beginning the school year (and for their parents, too!)

Traci Smith, author of Little Prayers for Everyday Life

The story of Little Mole's first day of school offers warm reassurance for anxious children, and maybe for their equally anxious parents.
