Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—A bluebird, a lamb, the stars in the sky, and a few other wild and domesticated animals entreat a little fox to join them in bringing gifts to a new baby. Fox doesn't seem to listen, preferring to dance with snowflakes and romp in the stream, but when he shows up at the barn, his playfulness is a gift in itself. The full-spread illustrations portray a winsome young fox frolicking against a snowy scene glowing with soft, rich colors. The text, though simple enough for preschoolers, doesn't bring anything new to the Christmas story; the moral isn't expressed in a way that is particularly resonant or forceful. That there was most likely no snow in Bethlehem on that first Christmas night might not be a problem, since this baby isn't ever named as baby Jesus—even though he is in a manger surrounded by animals. VERDICT A visually appealing but forgettable story.—Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library

Review

PRAISE FOR THE CHRISTMAS FOX

"In this understated, beautifully illustrated Nativity story, a little fox is invited to come along on a journey because a baby will be arriving soon. Glowing watercolor illustrations in a loose, expressive style capture the antics of the fox and create an exciting environment of starry skies, snowy fields, and a light-filled stable. A lovely, gentle, and open-ended introduction to the story of the birth of baby Jesus" --Kirkus Reviews

"McGrory transplants the Nativity story to a snowy woodland setting. . . . McGrory’s soft, gestural artwork, washed with pale color and infused with lemony light, celebrate the fox’s play, and his joyful spirit is a gift both to the waiting child and to readers." --Publishers Weekly

"This homey take on the Nativity story delivers a warm tale of love and humility for the
holidays." --The Horn Book
