Resource Description

When a young fox is separated from his family due to the destruction of his habitat by urbanization, he reminisces about what life was like with his family when he was younger. The fox travels through the city searching for a way back home and eventually he reaches a wildlife tunnel that he passes through and is reunited with his family. This engaging picture book has colourful, effective illustrations that capture the fox’s experiences and emotions of being displaced, lonely, and sad, which help readers empathize with the fox’s situation. Suitable for the classroom library or as a read-aloud to promote discussions of animals, nature, habitat destruction, and the effects of urbanization on animals. Log in to read the full ERAC review.
