Review

 The Fox Diaries charmed me .. it draws the reader into nature and includes them in the discovery process. I was impressed with the accurate details included...and how seamlessly they blended into the story line.  Kristie Burns
--The Bearth Institute

"The Fox Diaries is a beautiful collection that brings nature and beauty to life with each turning of the page.  I highly recommend this lovely book for adults and children of all ages."  Eileen Straiton
--Little Acorn Learning

She captures the essence of these foxes in a magical whimsical treasury of a book. The pictures are so amazing.Watch with the artful eye of Valarie's camera as the family explores, learns, and grows. Donna Ashton.  --The Waldorf Connection

 I love the up close and personal photos. You truly captured the essence of their individual personalities and provided insight into the lives of such private and beautiful creatures. It's a wonderful book! Terry Green

Format: Hardcover
The Fox Diaries is a cute little book about the lives of five foxes that have spent a year in the authors garden.

Pros: Beautiful pictures of the five gorgeous foxes. Great descriptions and cute captions. Great for animal lovers!

Cons: Its a little unclear whether this book is intended for children or adults. The photos are great for kids although it is not really written in a way to appeal to children. However, its not exactly written at an adult level either...it seems to be somewhere in between.

Verdict: I enjoyed looking at the cute photos of the fox family and reading about them. This book definitely increased my knowledge on foxes.

Fox Diaries was a very enjoyable story. My children and I learned so much about this little fox family specifically but even more generally we learned so much about fox families, their habitat, their behaviors, their play etc... They are so cute and the author did a great job naming and portraying each of the family members. They were so cute and although they are foxes, their personalities can be similar to so many other species of animals. We loved this book and it is so educational and informative. A great way to teach our children while also entertaining them. Five stars. Oh - and the photography was awesome!

Told with exquisite photos, The Fox Diaries is a perfect blend of storytelling, observance, and facts about foxes. A story about a family of foxes who live in the authors front yard. I delighted in embracing their distinctive personalities, and how this patient mother fox cared and murmured her young as she taught them lessons to survive with. Author Valarie Budayr has given us a front row seat into the daily life and world of foxes. Great to read alone or share with loved ones. It will soon become a treasured family favorite.

The Fox Diaries is an amazing contribution to my children's household library. The story is captivating and the close up real life photography is both beautiful and amazing. The whole family loved following along in the footsteps of the baby fox as they learn to explore the wide open world before them. I also loved how the end of the book contains facts and information about the fox. Thank you so much for such an amazing resource.

I purchased the Fox Diaries for my 9 year old for his birthday and he LOVED it. This dino-loving-100%-boy was so excited with this book and the beautiful pictures, he took it to school when his class project was to do a book report on his favorite book for Station F.U.N. As a parent, I love this book too. Such a sweet story and the imagery and graphic design is unlike anything else I have seen. Two paws...um...thumbs up for The Fix Diaries!
