When I was 4, I learned to read from the wonderful books by Thornton W Burgess. They had lovely illustrations and LARGE print. This Children's Thrift series has such small print that Grandmothers have trouble reading them, let alone early readers.

These books are old fashioned. They ascribe human thoughts and emotions to animals. You may find that off-putting. However, the natural history (how animals live and feed themselves) is realistic. If your child understands poetic license and anthropomorphism, these books are still charming. It is a shame that they are barely readable.

Format: Paperback
Poor Whitefoot, this spirited little wood mouse has more troubles and predators than any other of Thornton Burgess' animal characters. His adventures in staying away from those two things make up most of the story, but it ultimately leads Whitefoot into new friendships and happiness. Along the way, youngsters are taught valuable lessons about nature, all while being thoroughly entertained.

The story starts out with Whitefoot seeking a new home, which he finds in a pile of discarded wood. However, soon Farmer Brown's boy comes lurking around the area to work and little by little has to pluck away the wood for his own purposes; robbing Whitefoot of his dark home that he likes. All isn't bad though, as Farmer Brown's boy ends up becoming great friends with Whitefoot. Farmer Brown's boy feeds Whitefoot regularly. Whitefoot then ends up in great trouble, and just as it seems that all hope is lost, Farmer Brown's boy comes to Whitefoot's aid, proving that not all creatures bigger than a mouse are out to get Whitefoot.

Later in the tale, Whitefoot ends up having much fun (not really) in trying to stay away from a hawk, an owl and Whitefoot's most dreaded enemy: Shadow the Weasel who can follow Whitefoot into any of his little holes. Whitefoot's friend, Hopper the Hare, joins Whitefoot in his quest to get away from the predators.

The happy ending off this book is a result of Whitefoot starting a family, which makes him very happy.

With many twists and turns, I really think that your son or daughter will love this book (my daughter does), whether or not they are old enough to read it themselves, as the book also makes for great bedtime readings. I hope you give the book a try.

Darien Summers, author of The Mischievous Hare, a children's book.

The Burgess books are excellent pieces of children's literature and Whitefoot is one of our favorites. The amazon free kindle copies have been a tremendous blessing to our homeschool.
