More stories about two endearing friends.The lovable vole and groundhog who first appeared in Rose and Riley "return for three new stories about friendship and misunderstandings. First they head to the beach, where Riley is intent on finding a picture-perfect seashell, while Rose is
content with what the tide has to offer. Then the two embark on a hike to hunt for wildflowers, which makes Riley rather nervous. And finally Riley seems to have a yard full of noisy birds, but it's Rose who figures out the singing is coming from
just one chatty mockingbird.
Cheerful watercolors enhance these tales for children ready to jump from picture books to beginning readers.
