"The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame
Mole, Water Rat, Badger, and the mischievous Toad live a quiet life on the banks of the River Thames with the rest of their animal friends. But Toad tends to get into trouble, and his passion for cars eventually results in his being caught and kept a helpless prisoner in the remotest dungeon of the best-guarded castle in all the land. Dressed as a washerwoman—and with some help from his friends—Toad manages to escape the castle and begins his journey home to Toad Hall.
MY THOUGHTS: This is a great book for all those little minds. They can see all the wonderful animals and the places they live. The illustrations are beautifully done and very colorful. Little minds can imagine where Mr. Mole, Mr. Rat, Mr. Toad and all the animals live an play. This would be a great book to read to your little ones.
