Fox's Garden by Princesse Camcam (born as Camille Garoche) is a delightful heartwarming story about a fox and her new family of kits.

It's easy for children to point out in the beginning that Fox is about to have a new family of kits to care for. She's searching for a safe place for her new family and finds it in a greenhouse nearby. The boy who lives there is curious about her. Follow along in the story to see how their relationship will unfold.

The illustrations are cut paper and have a warm and realistic appeal. It always amazes me when reading these wordless books that once you get to the end, you never realize that there were no words because the illustrations say so much.

I'm looking forward to reading this entire series...

'Fox's Garden by Princesse Camcam is a wonderful story about a boy who's kindness to a fox brings him a reward. When a pregnant hungry fox is shooed away by many people a boy decides to give her food in order for her and her babies to be well nourished. The night the mother fox is given food her babies are born. To return the kindness bestowed on them, the foxes build a garden for the boy. This is a wonderful story about kindness that teaches children to be kind to all creatures without expecting anything in return. This picture book is also wonderful for children to read and interpret meaning. ( )

This book shows the struggle of a fox trying to find shelter. As the fox comes to a nearby town, she goes to the door of a little boy, but his mean father answers the door and turns the fox away. The little boy sneaks out the window to take the fox a basket to sleep in, when he finds her with her babies. The little boy returns home, only to have the fox and her babies follow in behind him. This book is very heartwarming and shows children how to be a kind person, because even though the fox is an animal, the young boy helped the fox even before he knew she had babies. A good lesson for children would be to treat people kind no matter what their situation. ( )

It would be easy to sneer at someone calling herself "Princesse Camcam". But not if you actually looked at her work. This is some gorgeous stuff, so intricate, so nuanced, so emotionally evocative. This is a beautiful book. Go, get your hands on a copy right now, before the next snowfall hits, because snowed in is a perfect way to enjoy this. I'll wait.




















See, what'd I say? The light! So lovely. The fox! The kid's room!

A pregnant fox sneaks quietly through the cold night in the small town. Eagerly looking for food to feed her unborn babies, the fox is shooed away by everyone with anger;until, a young boy sees the fox pass his window into the greenhouse outside his room. He notices that she is pregnant and quietly sneaks out of the house to give her some food. The next day, the babies are born and the mama fox returns his favor. The little boy's kindness in this story ends up benefiting him well. Although, that was not his purpose for feeding the fox. In return, the Fox family plants a garden in his room while he is asleep to show their appreciation. This book is great for discussing the meaning of kindness through pictures. As you flip through the pages, discuses with your child the importance of being kind and expecting nothing in return. Talk about why the Fox family left a garden for the young boy and why it is important to be kind to others, even though you may not know them. Another thing that this book could be used for is reading comprehension and creating ones own story from the pictures. As you flip through the pages, have your students dictate what they believe is going on in the story and then develop some type of class story based off their responses. This not only shows that they can follow the meaning of a book without words, but that they can come up with words that best fit the story line by simply looking at the pictures! ( )

Princesse Camcam's cut-paper illustrations, along with the beautiful lighting of the sets she creates, make the experience of looking at these illustrations both touching and transcendent. Their beauty and essential simplicity reflect the beauty of the story. The reader is left charmed by the fox and the child and thoughtful about the emotional lives of both humans and other creatures."--… (more)
