On a windy spring day, what do Bear and Mole decide to do? Why, fly a kite, of course But first they have to build one. They design, measure, and finally construct their kite. With a "zoom, zoom, zoom" the kite soars "up, up, up" in the air. But when a storm rumbles in --"SNAP" --the kite string breaks The chase is on as the two friends tear after their kite and find it in a tree, protecting a nest of baby birds from the rain. This sweet story makes a perfect read-aloud for preschoolers.
