Dig deep with Mole to uncover the best treasures of all in this Guided Reading Level G story.
Hunting for buried treasure, Mole unearths a twig. It's not much use to him, but a bird flying by wants it for a nest. When he discovers a shell, Mole gives it to Snail for a cozy home. Happy to share, Mole keeps digging, and uncovers—another hole, with another little mole in it. A new friend—what a treasure indeed.
