Magical, memorable moments were spent mulling over the multi-faceted lives of the magnificent moles of Mede Meadow. Sweet stories complete with handy lexicon for many words with “m” alliteration. Mighty hard to decide which mole impressed me most! Am sharing copies with many young family and friends. Mary Remmel Wohlleb
Sweet book focusing on words that begin with the letter “m” to tell a story about the adventures of individual members of a “mole” family. Kids will love the story and learning new words. Marie Procter
Awesome book!!!! Barney Fyffe
Magnificent Moles of Mede Meadow is a magical storybook. It follows a year in the lives of Merinda, Molfred, Malene, Myrilla, Morven, Meander and Mozie, the children of Mr. and Mrs. Mole. Each child has a particular gift or personality trait which leads her or him into various adventures. The charming illustrations portray exactly how one might imagine a mole family with the usual sibling bickering and teasing, but with genuine love and support at the core of the family. Children and their parents (or grandparents or favorite aunts or uncles or teachers) will share their amusement over the community of meadow citizens and they will enjoy stretching their vocabularies with a mountain of “m” words. This book combines teachable moments and mirth. Marlene Macke
One of the most imaginative children’s books I’ve ever read, Magnificent Moles of Mede Meadow will fascinate my grandnieces and other children and nudge them toward accepting their unique qualities and interests as they read the inspirational adventures of the imaginary mole family. The book instills a playful appreciation of language while expanding the child’s vocabulary. I enjoyed reading this beautifully illustrated book. Elaine Patrick, Retired Librarian
The Mole book is a delight and a triumph! I wish I had had the book as a child. It makes learning new words a fun adventure and gently teaches many valuable lessons about identity, perseverance, the artistic process, diversity, overcoming fears and bullies, and forming happy relationships. The illustrations are wonderful–I love the sense of color and composition. Bravo! Dannah Edwards
