#blogbookaday: Morris Mole

21 Jul

Morris Mole.jpgSummary:  “Meet Morris Mole—he has always been a little bit different. When the moles are running low on food, it’s up to clever Morris to save the day. With a little help from an unexpected friend and a lot of digging, Morris learns that even the smallest creatures can do big things.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Morris the mole was different from all his brothers and even when he had good ideas, his brothers just didn’t listen to him. So when he decided to dig up to see what he could find, he was surprised at what the surface had to offer, plus he was able to help his family in a way that was very much needed.

Personal Reaction: I thought this was a sweet story about listening to your heart and learning that even when no one listens to your voice, it’s important to voice it and to follow it. I think my favorite image in the whole book is when Morris reaches the surface with beautiful flowers, birds, bugs and more (and with his fun little umbrella and checkered suit). I really enjoyed this story and with it’s silly little parts, the message doesn’t feel heavy-handed at all!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
