Review: Move That Mountain

The award-winning Kate and Jol Temple are back with another picture book, illustrated by Terri Rose Baynton, that shows there are two sides to every story.

Move That Mountain is a reminder that no problem is too big to overcome, and no creature too small to overcome it.

Puffins and a whale are the feature characters in this story, and they are super cute.

The poor whale has become beached, stuck out of the water, and unable to return to its home in the the depths of the ocean.

There’s no one around to help. Except for a colony of puffins (yes, the collective noun for puffins is a colony or a circus, or sometimes a burrow, gathering or improbability!).

The puffins try hard to move the whale, but it just won’t budge. Its far too big for the tiny puffins, as
big as a mountain!

It’s only when they really work together that the puffins and whale will see success.

Start from the front of Move That Mountain and when you reach the back you will need to read from there back to the beginning again, to experience the full story and see how it is possible to move mountains. 

Move That Mountain is a sweet story with cute illustrations, that reminds us that problems are not insurmountable, and that it’s easier if we help each other. Bound to be enjoyed by the whole family.
