Award-winning illustrator David McPhail celebrates a story of unconditional love.
In a poem about a Mama Fox's unconditional love for her cub, this story describes the many moods of all children-from happy to frightened, bashful to silly, and more-and will reassure them of their parents' abiding affection and approval.
Truly remarkable watercolor illustrations from David McPhail, sensitively wrought and never saccharine, are the perfect complement to Liza Baker's rhythmic, rhyming text. This book has quickly become a family favorite-and an enduring classic of the genre.

I got this book for my two year old... She LOVES it.. I love it too... She even tries to read the book herself... Whenever she wants to read, this is the first book she grabs.
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!
