Hello, friends! Our book today is How to Find a Fox, written by Kate Gardner and photography by Ossi Saarinen, a gorgeous look at a popular species.
There a lots of places to find a fox: in the forest, in the meadow, and even in the city! You can look in the morning and the afternoon, but the best times are dusk and dawn. You can look year round, since foxes don’t hibernate, but don’t look in the rain – foxes stay out of bad weather! In order to find a fox, look for fast feet, fluffy tail, and amber eyes; be quiet and patient, and with a little luck, you can find a fox!
An exciting visual treat. Saarinen’s stunning wildlife photography sets a beautiful scene for a simplified lesson on vulpes vulpes; information is covered in short lines and conversational paragraphs. Some landscape photographs without fauna and pictures of other wildlife can feel a little extraneous, and occasionally confusing, particularly two that feature unidentified animals tracks after a spread on identifying a fox’s. Still, the eye-catching photos and easy-to-read text make this a fun way to explore a popular species. The length is fine for elementary readers, and JJ loved the pictures. For fans of foxes, a lovely way to learn and explore from a fox-eye-view, and we liked it. Baby Bookworm approved!
