Synopsis

Faraway Fox by Jolene Thompson

As Fox wanders through a strange landscape, he cannot help but be reminded--at every corner--of the streams, the trees, and the family he once knew. Fox would like nothing more than to return to his home, but it seems the cityscape has built up around him. Follow Fox as he looks for a way back home to the wild green land where every fox belongs. Back matter shows readers the creative ways humans are helping to mitigate habitat encroachment in our towns and cities.

Reviews

School Library Journal's Fuse#8 Best of 2016 The Thompsons sensitively examine the effect of human development on wildlife through the lens of a fox that has been separated from its family. A happy reunion for the fox--thanks to the construction of a highway underpass designed to give animals a safe crossing--feels very well deserved. -Publishers Weekly .. .author Thompson's words give a gentle, reflective tone to the story that addresses not only habitat reduction, but also the difficult problem of animals and vehicles. Illustrator Thompson's luminous artwork adds empathy to the text and offers hope not only for the fox, but also for many wild creatures... --Kirkus A primary purchase where young naturalists abound. --School Library Journal

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
