Summer Reading Day 53: Today’s book was Fox by Kate Banks. As I’ve mentioned before, foxes are my favorite animal, so mommy was definitely excited about this book, and it didn’t really disappoint. It has a fox family, lovely descriptions of the passage of time over a year as a fox kit grows up, and the time-honored tale of learning how to fend for yourself (and your parents providing you with that knowledge). The art as sweet, with broad brush strokes featuring the colors of nature. But honestly, this was another book that left me tepid: no major complaints, but nothing that made me fall in love. Regardless, JJ liked it well enough, and it was a good length, so thumbs up.
