Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Little Fox and Father Fox decide to make a better breakfast than the porridge Mother Fox has ready for them. When they discover that they are out of all of the ingredients they need, they decide to wait until Mother Fox returns from the store. In the meantime they do chores and have fun together. Now hungry, they decide to taste the leftover porridge. Mother Fox returns and finds them eating it out of the pot so she heats it up and they devour every last bit. This sweet story will strike a chord with youngsters. The appealing drawings are done in soft colors and show lots of activity. They are bright and large enough to share with a small group or can be enjoyed one-on-one.

From Booklist

Ages 4-7. The author of Little Fox (1999) offers a follow-up that falls short of its charming predecessor but will still resonate with preschoolers. It's Saturday morning, and while Mother Fox starts breakfast, Little Fox climbs into bed with Father and snoozes until the meal is ready. Breakfast turns out to be porridge, and although neither has tried it, both Father and Little Fox turn up their snouts and decide to make their own familiar food, but the cupboards are bare. Mother offers to shop, and while she's gone, Father and Little Fox tidy and dust, roughhousing along the way. Too hungry to wait for Mother's return, they try the porridge and love it, much to mother's eventual amusement. The simple but rather strained text tells a story about family cooperation and trying new things. The artwork is stronger than the story. The light, pastel pencil-and-watercolor images of lounging and rowdy housecleaning emphasize the bond between Little Fox and his dad. Best for lap sharing. Gillian Engberg

Format: Hardcover
Good Morning Little Fox is a happy return of one of our favorite characters from children's literature, the adorable Little Fox who first made his appearance in print in 1999 in LITTLE FOX. Marilyn Janovitz's illustrations combine a soft palette of colorful pencils with a warmth and a luster you don't find in many children's books, more's the pity. In a way GOOD MORNING isn't much of a sequel per se, it's its own story, and a less violent one than its notable predecessor. Remember in the first on,e the whole plot was about how Mother and Father Fox were always going off on Little Fox about, don't jump on the furniture, or it might break? That was so cute, but also the breaking up of the furniture was a little strong and might frighten younger kids. However, a lot of children love shopping and much of the book involved shopping for a new chair to replace the one Little Fox destroyed--just out of sheer rambunctiousness, it's not that he was the Bad Seed or anything. You might say he's a typical 4 year old. Or 5 year old.

In the present book we see Little Fox claiming that he doesn't like porridge just because he has overheard his dad say the same thing. In this way we see the little boy fox taking the lead from Father Fox, even if at the bottom of his heart he does actually enjoy the porridge. Janovitz shows how gender roles are built up and rigidly stratified just based on a few stray comments. It's clever, but maybe lacks the punch of LITTLE FOX Part 1. Folks searching for yet another Little Fox book should watch out for ZORRITO, which my children ordered anxiously and then they were all too disappointed to find out that it is merely a translation (into Spanish) of the original adventure with the chairs. However, they learned a bit of Spanish from reading the book so, no harm done, indeed a bit of good may come of it.

This is a lovely book and a great way to get a child to eat something new. My 4 yr old grandaughter loves it.
