PreS-K–Capturing a young child's yearning for independence, Tompert describes the story of Little Fox, who tells her mother, “Some day…I'm going to travel to the end of the world.” Her mother's wise reply encourages Little Fox's imagination and conversation by asking appropriate questions such as, “What will you see?” “Won't you be scared?” Bryant's dramatic watercolor artwork frequently fills the spreads. The menacing look on the crocodiles' faces with their hypnotic eyes and razor-sharp incisors will intrigue children. Although Tompert's text was originally published in 1976, the story is as fresh as ever and will engage a new group of listeners.Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

Kids just learning to read and write are often encouraged to come up with their own stories verbally first, and that’s just what Little Fox does here. Her fanciful story rings true to anyone who has listened to the kinds of winding stories kindergartners create: Little Fox’s made-up adventure takes her into the forest, across a river, into the mountains, over the ocean, and back, and she contends with monkeys, elephants, one-eyed cats, and more. Throughout, Little Fox’s mother prompts her with questions; this is a helpful model for adults wishing to encourage young storytelling. As with Max’s imaginary trip in Where the Wild Things Are (1963), when Little Fox’s is over, a hot meal is waiting. Charming watercolor paintings show close-ups of the action, with Little Fox herself often in the background; the focus here is on the story’s elements: crocodiles, monkeys, big waves, and the like. First published in 1976 with illustrations by John Wallner, this story continues to suit beginning adventurers. Grades K-2. --Diane Foote
