Synopsis from Publishers Group Canada:
One snowy night, a fox loses its way, entering a village. Chased away by the grown ups, Fox takes shelter in a greenhouse. A little boy sees this from his window. Without hesitating, he brings a basket of food to the greenhouse, where he leaves it for the fox. His gift is noticed and the night becomes a garden of new life, nourished by compassion and kindness.
Sometimes a wordless picture book encourages the reader to tell their own story. Fox’s Garden takes readers into a beautifully illustrated paper world, unwrapping the story of a mother fox and a caring little boy. Along with being entranced by the details created by the author’s art, Fox’s Garden reminds us not to be too hasty in judgement and that little gestures go a long way. Pretty impressive without one word being used.
Please leave a comment below letting me know any books your kids are interested in so I can keep them in mind for future reviews.
