Maybe not for very little ones that are sensitive to "scary" things
on December 4, 2017
I remember this book from my childhood and thought it would be good for my 2 year old, but after re-reading it as an adult, I'm not sure it's suitable for a very young child, or at least not one that's sensitive to anything scary (like being chased after). There's a reference to the boy saying he's going to "whip" the fox which if you are more into "gentle parenting" your toddler might not understand why the boy would whip the fox. Also, the cow says the fox wants to "kill her little one" and for a very young child this might be a scary thought. These were my personal reservations, and maybe when my son is a little older and understands that none of the animals were actually trying to harm one another it might be better, but for now this book will just sit on the bookshelf.
