This actually surprised me as I read it. It is basic for the young reader-listener but it still has a storyline (and a cute one at that) to it. Letting kids know it's okay to try something new, it's okay to have 'new' friends etc. the illustrations are nice to the eye as well.

My girls are 3.5 and 5, and I thought the vocabulary would be too difficult for them to understand and engage with. I was wrong! They were both mesmerized and had to read Book 2 the following time I read to them at bedtime. I found that if I added a few words of explanation after difficult words, they were able to follow the story just fine.
This book is the first in this beginning reader series, introducing young readers to the classic story of The Wind in the Willows.
Emma enjoyed reading this story. Just the right length of story for her to finish at night.
a section of the wind in the willows story broken down for younger readers
Mole wasn't very smart.
