This story is about a little fox who is very curious and wants to explore his environment. His mom and dad have to tell him "No, fox, no" prompting the little fox to ask "When will I be ready?", "Soon" the parents reply. As the days pass, the fox grows up to finally live on his own and his parents say "He's ready".

A cute story about growing up that I think any younger child can relate to. The illustrations are great, too! ( )

It is spring time and Little Fox wants to leave his den and venture into the forest. But before he can leave, his mom stops him, claiming that he isn't ready yet. Little Fox wonders when he will be ready. Then one night, his mother and father take him out into the world and show him how to find blackberries, catch rodents, and hunt birds, but still, Little Fox is not ready to go out on his own. Eventually, Fall comes and his mother gathers extra berries and seeds to store for the winter. As time goes by, Little Fox grows strong and able. At last, he is ready to go out and hunt food on his own. ( )

This is a simple tale, well done. It shows baby fox growing up, eager to be out on his own, but needing to wait until his parents feel he's ready. Poignant ending when he's excited to be leaving the den but also knowing he's leaching his home. The illustrations are gorgeous - thickly painted in warm natural colors.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374399670, Hardcover)

Against the rhythmic background of turning seasons, a little fox learns that there is a time for everything. The rain, the clouds, the days all come and go as the little fox, guided by his wise and loving parents, learns to hunt on his own and bury his food, cover his trail and run like the wind. Now he is ready to go out on his own.
As depicted by an award-winning pair, the gentle story of the rearing of a baby fox, together with sensuous illustrations, takes readers on a journey deep into the woods to tell a tale that all will recognize - that of growing up and moving out.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:05:33 -0400)

A baby fox anticipates the time when he can go out alone, but first his parents must teach him the ways of the wilderness.
