Fox Diaries was a very enjoyable story.  My children and I learned so much about this little fox family specifically but even more generally we learned so much about fox families, their habitat, their behaviors, their play etc...  They are so cute and the author did a great job naming and portraying each of the family members.  They were so cute and although they are foxes, their personalities can be similar to so many other species of animals.  We loved this book and it is so educational and informative.  A great way to teach our children while also entertaining them.  Five stars.  Oh - and the photography was awesome! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Truly a magnificent story for Children of all ages! Told with exquisite photos, The Fox Diaries is a perfect blend of storytelling, observance, and facts about foxes. A story about a family of foxes who live in the authors front yard. I delighted in embracing their distinctive personalities, and how this patient mother fox cared and murmured her young as she taught them lessons to survive with. Author Valarie Budayr has given us a front row seat into the daily life and world of foxes. Great to read alone or share with loved ones. It will soon become a treasured family favorite.

The Fox Diaries is a wonderful story with beautiful pictures. All three of my children ages 8 – 15 have loved reading it and pick it up over and over again. I highly recommend it to anyone (children and adults) looking for a story of love and inspiration.

The Fox Diaries is a juvenile nonfiction book on the family of foxes that would come to play in author Valarie Budayr¿s garden. While the book is essentially a diary for the foxes, Budayr incorporates facts on foxes and why they act the way they do into the book after each look into the foxes¿ lives.Photos of the foxes fill the diary, so much that it feels that the diary is mostly a narrative addition to a diary of photos cataloguing the foxes¿ activity in Budayr¿s garden. In fact, the book really is like the movie edition of a book with photos illustrating each successive movement of the foxes and the text explaining what¿s happening. Budayr even gives the foxes names and personalities!The book contains information on fox games, fox hunting, and overall how Mama Rennie takes care of her kits and helps prepare them for entering the world on their own. At the end, Budayr provides context on red foxes, a glossary, and a list of resources.This book provides an education read for young children while entertaining them at the same time. As a longtime animal lover, I know that I would have loved this book as a young girl!

The Fox Diaries is a charming mix of storytelling, facts, and observances about a family of fox that take up residence in the author's yard--to her delight. Through photography, storytelling and facts about foxes, we enjoy the individual personalities of each in the fox family, we learn about how a mother fox cares for her young--and how she teaches them to grow and become independent.

I purchased the Fox Diaries for my 9 year old for his birthday and he LOVED it. This dino-loving-100%-boy was so excited with this book and the beautiful pictures, he took it to school when his class project was to do a book report on his favorite book for Station F.U.N. As a parent, I love this book too. Such a sweet story and the imagery and graphic design is unlike anything else I have seen. Two up for The Fix Diaries!
