gorgeous story of determination
FOX AND THE BOX is a charming picture book that follows a fox as he/she converts a box into a boat, gets lost at sea, and then saved by a whale. In clever text of rhyming words on each page spread, the story plays out with gorgeous images and minimal text.
What I loved: With minimal and rhyming text, this book is completely charming even for the youngest of readers. The illustrations are gorgeous and thrilling as we watch Fox convert the box into a boat and then fight the elements until arriving safely back at shore (thanks to the whale). The sea and storm are unbelievably beautiful, and young readers will love exploring the images in this book. The personality of the Fox shines through the illustrations, making this an even better story.
Final verdict: This picture book is a lovely and delightful read for young readers, as the pages can turn quickly with minimal text and gorgeous illustrations. Highly recommend this story of determination, exploration, and friendship for young readers from toddlers through young elementary schoolers.
