Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In this warm and fuzzy hug of a book, a parent's love knows no bounds." --Publisher's Weekly

"Make room on your shelves for one more sweet story in this genre." --School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—This reassuring story centers on a spirited, young bushy-tailed fox whose patient mother loves him no matter what he does or how he feels. Whether he's happily eating cookies, dancing silly dances, mourning a broken toy, or refusing to brush his teeth, mother fox's love is unconditional. McPhail's illustrations feature muted colors and lots of white space. There's a round softness that matches the comforting rhyming text. This series installment focuses on developing school readiness skills through prompts and activities. Each title in the series highlights a different ability—in this case, emotions. Extension activities, found on the final endpapers, include discussion questions to encourage children to express their emotions; a version of Simon Says; a rather lackluster list of words to search, find, and count; and a drawing prompt. Throughout the book, short dialogic reading prompts are printed in page corners, asking readers to discuss the story, use their imagination, make narrative predictions, and look for objects in the illustrations. There are a large number of prompts, enough for several readings, which makes up for the few that are rather forced. For instance, "Fox and Lamb are having a playdate! Do you know which animal is which?" Although children's librarians are already familiar with these types of dialogic reading questions, many caregivers will find the modeling helpful. VERDICT A satisfying story and plenty of dialogic reading prompts for caregivers make this an excellent choice for a themed kit or toddler-preschool giveaway.—Amy Seto Forrester, Denver Public Library

This book was given to my 4 year old at the doctor. He sometimes asks for it by name. It has a cute story.

I bought this for my daughter when she was two. Even though she memorized every word before she could read, and now can read it herself at age 6 - she still loves to have me read this book to her. Recently she was asked at school to write about one of her favorite books - she chose this book! It is a sweet classic that will be around our house forever.

I loved this book, and so did my children. The mother is telling the child that she loves him no matter what. It shows the child in all different moods and behaviors, and no matter what the mother still loves him. It is a wonderful thing to remind your children of!
