How to Find a Fox by Nilah Magruder - NO

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
