You know how when your child is having a bad day you just want to cheer them up? Papa Fox has the same desire, and in Little Fox and the Wild Imagination, we see just how far a cheering up can go.
The basics of Little Fox
Raincoast Books has sent me a fun read that extols the virtues of having an excellent imagination while showing the love of a dad for his boy. Little Fox and the Wild Imagination is a rollicking ride through after-school events between Dad and son. 40 pages of explosive action, with the wild imagination of dad and son fueling events. Roaring Brook Press sent me an Advanced Readers Copy, the released copy will be a jacketed hardcover.
Learning more about Little Fox and the Wild Imagination
You will love the crazy imaginations of dad and son. Jorma Taccone does an excellent job of showing the love between parent and child. Dan Santat does an excellent job of bringing that story to life. Just look at this illustrations! I love the excellent use of colour and those facial expressions aren’t they just the best?
The font size is great, lending itself well to reading easily while a child in sitting with you, or for engaging a group of children. The text itself varies in size, shape, and colour depending on what’s going on.
While this picture book is geared to 3-6 year olds, I think that children up to 8 will thoroughly enjoy the antics of Poppa and Little Fox.
I should have taken a picture of the roaring dinasaurs tumbling out of the fun, but alas I just have this precursor to the dinosaur excitement.
Should you get it?
I love how everyday events are filled with excitement when imagination takes central stage. A walk home, a bus ride, and even bedtime. Fun, lovable, thoroughly enjoyable. Little Fox and the Wild Imagination is a sure fire winner. The bond seen in families is a wonderful thing indeed.
