An arctic fox adopts a baby goose in this heartwarming read-aloud perfect for dads and their little ones
When Aput the fox finds an abandoned goose egg, he has no idea what's in store for him. He doesn’t know anything about babies and he certainly doesn’t know what to do when the gosling hatches and mistakes him for its daddy. So he decides to find the gosling a home. But with each page turn, Aput learns more about caring for a baby and, with a little help from his friends, he discovers what a baby needs most is love.

I got this for my grandchild whose mother is expecting her second — and I’m so very glad I did! This fun and exciting story for young children is full of warmth and love. When a father fox “adopts” a baby (goose), he travels around the animal village, asking and learning from other animals what all new babies need. So it’s perfect for expectant families. The fox creates a specific list of how to care for babies and what they need: warmth, food, sleep, play, to be watched over, and, most importantly, love. The lovely illustrations are just as sweet as the story. One of my favorite picture books in many years, I love reading this informative and warm book designed to help children (and their parents) understand what their new baby will need.
