Kite Day: A Bear and Mole Story by Will HillenbrandTwo friends are excited to have a windy day in which to build and fly a kite. Yay! But the kite string snaps--oh no! Then the kite lands in a tree and shelters a bird family.
I want to like this book more than I do. The illustrations are colorful and cute. Its a book about friends working and playing together, and about how sometimes something that seems bad (the kite string snapping) turns into something good (sheltering a bird family from the storm). There arent too many words, and what words there are flow pretty well. You might be able to get kids to repeat some of them on certain pages, particularly the onomatopoeic ones.
Yet my overall feeling when I read the book is...eh. Theres no(t enough) There there, so to speak. Im not sure why I didnt better connect with the cute bear and mole. Its OK, but its not one Ill probably pick up again. Ah well.

Jan 01, ISBN years. Feb 01, ISBN years. Jan 22, ISBN years. On a windy spring day, Bear sniffs the air. Could it be. Kite day?
Thank you! Blue sky and a gusty day make for one ebullient Bear. Huffing home he gathers Mole to commence the kite-making. Together they collect, cut, construct—and find success with their kite until dark clouds appear. A broken string and a spool unspun leave the two racing through rain after a rainbow tail. The artwork, digitally manipulated pencil with water-based coloring, has a lovely softness; the characters, with their plumpness and simplicity, are extremely appealing.
