Dream Big, Little Mole by Tom Percival is a delightful children's book illustrated by Christine Pym.

In the beginning of the book, Mole tries to find out what her skill is. After receiving some sage advice from Owl ("Be Brilliant. Be You!") Mole takes off on her new adventure and meets some friends along the way. 

Things don't quite go to plan, but by the end of the story Mole has also managed to discover her hidden talent.

Mole's story is told in a clever rhyme with a very pleasing rhythm and I've recently learned rhyming is important in helping young children to develop their language and literacy skills.

This picture book is such a warm story and the cute illustrations of the animals and their habitats are adorable. I really enjoyed accompanying Mole on her journey, and Dream Big, Little Mole by Tom Percival will be a joy to read with little ones.

You can seize this book at Booktopia.
