Magruder, Nilah How to Find a Fox. PICTURE BOOK. Feiwel and Friends, 2016. $17.
The little girl is determined to go into the forest and find herself a fox friend of her own.
The pictures are the best part of the book – they are colorful and delightful. The story however – how can I give a young student a book about going out in the woods alone to attract a wild animal? Can’t. Its one thing when they are tracking dinosaurs, trains, or trucks – things they wouldn’t really be catching – but foxes are real wild animals that should just be left alone. They are not the cute cuddly best friends portrayed in this book.
NOT RECOMMENDED. Cindy, Library Teacher
