Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
Meet Fox, the mailman. He loves the wind but today the wind is really blowing. The letters and cards he needs to deliver are blowing up, down, left, right, near, and far. Some get wet and others stay dry. Some blow over the fence and some blow under. Oh my! What is Fox to do? Luckily, his animal friends come to the rescue. Mama and baby duck, frog, snail, rabbit, bear, squirrel, and birds save the day. With a big thank you to his friends, Fox continues his mail delivery loving the windy day even more with all the mail tucked safely in his mailbag. Two page spreads with one to two words on each and lots of shiny foil leaves blowing along in the wind. Bright and sturdy pages with rounded corners and a soft padded cover with more shiny foil leaves. This book has twenty-four pages and thirty-three words conveying easy to learn word opposites and the wind, of course. The author and illustrator have also collaborated on One Snowy Day, One Rainy Day, and One Little Blueberry. An educational and entertaining selection for preschool children. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid

PreS-K—Fox usually loves the wind, but on one particular day it blows the mail he is trying to deliver all over the place. Letters are sent up/down, left/right, high/low, near/far, and over/under. The mail gets wet/dry. It ends up in light/dark places, and the mailbag becomes open/closed. As Fox tries to persevere, adorable animals help him to collect all the wayward missives, which earns them a big thank you on the last page. Each pair of opposites gets a spread. Wood's illustrations are uncluttered and keep the concepts easy to understand while delivering a cozy story. The difference between light and dark could have been more distinctive, but that's a minor quibble. Wood effectively conveys the wind in many ways, including a handful of coppery leaves swirling across the top of the spreads. Useful for teaching opposites and enjoyable overall.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
