Editorial Reviews

Review

"This gentle, comforting tale empowers kids to discover light in darkness on their own or with assistance from a warm, guiding hand. In support of this, a discussion guide for caregivers at the end provides simple facts about moles plus discussion questions and useful, empathetic tips to help a sad child find hope... Sweet and reassuring for little moles--and humans too." --Kirkus Reviews

"VERDICT With social-emotional curricula at the forefront of education right now, this charming story will find a place in many libraries." --School Library Journal

"Emily Dickinson wrote that "hope is the thing with feathers." It may also be daffodils, leaves, and butterflies, or the stories shared by a loving mama. A delightful book." --Rev. Dr. David A. Bard, Bishop of the Michigan United Methodist Church

"In Little Mole Finds Hope, Glenys Nellist brings us on a journey to hope through the eyes of a delightful little mole. Teaching abstract concepts like hope to young children can be a challenge, and this book has overcome it. I will tuck this one on our family's bookshelf and bring it out when we need a little reminder of what it means to look for the light when the world around seems too dark." --Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home and Prayers for Faithful Families: Everyday Prayers for Everyday Life

"The perfect resource for teachers to add to units on feelings, seasons, and life cycles. An uplifting story we all need!" --Joanna Rowland, author of The Memory Box and Stay Through the Storm

"A wonderful story about discovering beauty and light amid sad feelings and dark places, this book is a gift to both children and parents. With adorably vivid illustrations and tangible descriptions of hope that kids will understand, Little Mole Finds Hope will bring love, light, and curious conversations to every family's bedtime reading." --Matthew Paul Turner, author of When I Pray for You, When God Made Light, and When God Made You

"This beautiful book will delight and encourage the youngest readers and help them grasp the good news of hope. But it will also touch the hearts, minds, and souls of those of us grown-ups who need reminders that life springs forth from even the muddiest bulbs and barest branches and that light shines bright at the end of even the darkest tunnels." --Caryn Rivadeneira, author of the Helper Hounds series, Grit and Grace, and Grumble Hallelujah

"Little Mole Finds Hope is a wonderful and sensitive way to introduce children to the hope that always accompanies sadness." --Bishop Laurie Haller, Iowa Annual Conference, United Methodist Church

"With a gentle refrain and illustrations that perfectly fit the tone, Little Mole Finds Hope is a book that children will ask for again and again, and parents will gladly oblige. A beautiful story about sadness and hope." --The Rev. Dr. Kathleen Long Bostrom, award-winning children's book author

"Simple, lyrical, and profoundly wise, Little Mole Finds Hope deserves to become a classic in children's literature. I adore this beautiful book and its message of where hope can be found, even in the most unhappy times." --Jennifer Grant, author of Maybe God Is Like That Too and Maybe I Can Love My Neighbor Too

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Although I live in Michigan, USA, I was born and raised in a little village in northern England.

I grew up in a big old house, with two wonderful parents and seven siblings. My dad was the one who introduced me to the gospel. My mum was the one who encouraged me to work with children.

And at primary school, my teacher was the one who urged me to write. One day a week, I was one of the lucky few withdrawn from the classroom to sit in big, comfy armchairs in the teachers' lounge. There, in front of a roaring log fire, with pencil and paper at the ready, I would write.

Four long decades later, I would find myself living across the pond, married to a wonderful man, mum to four children and three daughters-in-law, and grandma to three bouncing boys and one gorgeous girl. And as if all that wasn’t blessing enough, I somehow became an author, despite giving up on my first book half way through.

And if you would have told me then, that this book would one day become a series, that I would begin a second series, and a third… I never would have believed you. The only possible explanation is that our great God is able to do immeasurably more than all I could ever ask or possibly imagine.

And to God, alone, be the glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless message of finding hope. The world needs this book right now.
By Heather on January 3, 2021
What a powerful and beautiful message in this gorgeous book of finding hope in the world when all seems dark. This message especially now is so important. Many kids deal with sadness at times, and given the current situation many are facing, its even more prevalent. Sadness and despair can be overwhelming to a child. This book belongs in every household to remind the child (and the adult reading it) that there is always hope. I teared up reading it, but in a good way! :) The illustrations are also absolutely beautiful! A lovely book that the world needs right now! 🙏

5.0 out of 5 stars Signs of Hope
By J. Mccullough on March 6, 2020
Children's author Glenys Nellist offers opportunity for optimism in her book LITTLE MOLE FINDS HOPE (published in 2020 by Beaming Books). While lying in his dark burrow, Little Mole feels sad but doesn't understand why. His wise mother leads him out of his darkness and shows him blooms and butterflies and other places where he can find hope. This charming picture book, beautifully illustrated by Sally Garland, is a celebration of spring and all the hope it brings to young and old alike. Bonus features of the book include a discussion guide for caregivers and ideas for helping a child overcome sadness. I love the way the grey clouds in the front of the book are filled with yellow daffodils in the back. As Little Mole says, "Now I know there's always hope!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for any year, but ESPECIALLY this one!
By Alexander Burgers on January 3, 2021
As the Director of Children's Ministry at my local church and mother to a toddler, I am always on the look out for a quality picture book with a good message. This book definitely fits that bill, especially this year when even our youngest friends are experiencing feelings of grief and hopelessness. This book is great for any season - we used it for the children's message during Epiphany worship and I've given it out as gifts to families who are going through particularly hard times. Something my son loves about it is that it is part of a series, so we can follow Little Mole on adventures across books!
