Summary: When a single snowflake lands on a fox’s nose, the fox is unsure about how to handle the coming winter. He gathers advice from other animals, but hibernation and migration options don’t work for him for one reason or another. At last he meets another fox, and as snow begins to fall, whirling in the wind, the other fox shows him how they can dance together. 40 pages; ages 4-8.
Pros: Muted illustrations perfectly capture the feeling of late fall and early winter. The repeating text will help kids learn more about how animals survive the cold weather.
Cons: It would have been nice to see some back matter explaining more about animal behavior, and especially about the foxes’ dance.
