56. Kite Day (Holiday House, March 2012)
Will Hillenbrand
(Preschool-Grade 1)

Bear and Mole build a kite and take it out on a windy day, but when the weather suddenly turns stormy there are unexpected consequences for some birds.

"This cheerful picture book is a felicitous blend of short text and brightly-colored mixed-media illustrations. It is a winner for storytimes."

Starred Review, School Library Journal


"...narrative repetition and onomatopoeia make this as satisfying a read-aloud as its predecessor."
Publishers Weekly


"This gentle and charming read-aloud will make young audiences 'awww' with delight."
Kirkus Reviews
