Reviews

An irresistible kit fox greets the reader on the cover of this book and draws one into the world of Ferdinand and his family of red fox. Facts about the kit fox's life cycle, adaptations, and food preferences abound in this exquisite, photographic journey through the first year of life. - NSTA Recommends
The story, which takes readers through the course of a year, concludes with Ferdinand's gradual approach to independence as he must hunt on his own. Each spread includes a large, engaging photo and a paragraph or two of text. - School Library Journal
Close-up color photographs follow the first months in the life of a red fox. A single paragraph per page makes the text suitable for the young reader. - Library Media Connection
