I loved this gentle story which I bought to read with my four year old son.
A deceptively simple story about a mole and his friends - wonderfully written with such rich, descriptive language, Mole and his friend Vole travel to watch the sun rise together, which Mole has never seen before.
Exploring the senses as they walk, they join Rabbit, Squirrel and Sparrow by the lake to watch the sun come up, taking delight in comparing what they see to delicious foods.
A gorgeous story,ultimately about friendship, with so much opportunity to develop imaginative language and writing in older children, thought provoking and a lovely way to help children understand what it may be like to be blind - which is that tear-jerking moment at the end of the book when you discover Mole has no sight, and yet he was able to experience the beauty of the sunrise through his friends regardless.
Beautifully illustrated by Sarah Fox-Davis (Little Beaver and the Echo).
This book has huge potential to become a classic, as it has such rich language and introduces to younger children a positive image of blindness.
Would be a valuable addition to any home library, more so to a Foundation Stage class setting and fantastic material for discussion in KS1 and 2.
One of those books in which you seem to notice some new detail with each re-reading.
My best book 'find' of 2012 - It's simply a gorgeous, treasure of a picture book.

I bought this book for my place of work; I'm a learning support for a child with visual impairments, and I thought it would be a nice piece to support the VI awareness of the other children. The story isn't patronising or blatant, it's sensitively told with some lovely descriptive language which tells the mole how the sun changes as it rises. As a piece for a class with a VI child it's nice to show the relationships between the friends and - on a different note - encourages children to say what they see in a creative way.

The illustrations are soft, realistic and gentle. Sarah Fox-Davis has a wonderful gauge of light, dark and texture. The shapes aren't unnatural, nor do they pop aggressively from the page. They're comforting and warm, and the character designs are realistic enough that children can link them to their real life counterparts but still full of uniqueness in themselves.

Some of the language was a bit repetitive, but I think EYFS or the younger end of KS1 would appreciate it as an introduction to VI. Otherwise, enjoy it as is.
