by John Medler
This is a heart-warming story about international adoption. Molly Mole was feeling a great void in her life without a child to love. On the other side of the world, baby Natasha searched for a new mommy. Maybe, if Natasha can overcome all: her small size, foreign lands, and scary predators, she can find her new mommy mole. The Mommy Mole helps adopted children understand that they are not only a great treasure to their new parents, but that their birth parents love them, too.
A simple yet powerful story, written in clever verse, The Mommy Mole affirms in us the belief that love will conquer all.
