On the weekend, Little Fox likes to do things with Father Fox. One Saturday, Mother has prepared a surprise for breakfast-porridge. "I don't think I like porridge," says Father Fox, so of course Little Fox decides he doesn't like it either. As they do their weekend chores together Little Fox tries to imitate his father. But all that work makes them very hungry, and in a delightful reversal of roles, it is Little Fox who comes up with a solution that suits Father Fox just fine. This second book featuring adorable Little Fox is a feel-good story about father and son bonding that gently encourages children (and parents) to be open to new experiences.

Ages 4-7. The author of Little Fox (1999) offers a follow-up that falls short of its charming predecessor but will still resonate with preschoolers. It's Saturday morning, and while Mother Fox starts breakfast, Little Fox climbs into bed with Father and snoozes until the meal is ready. Breakfast turns out to be porridge, and although neither has tried it, both Father and Little Fox turn up their snouts and decide to make their own familiar food, but the cupboards are bare. Mother offers to shop, and while she's gone, Father and Little Fox tidy and dust, roughhousing along the way. Too hungry to wait for Mother's return, they try the porridge and love it, much to mother's eventual amusement. The simple but rather strained text tells a story about family cooperation and trying new things. The artwork is stronger than the story. The light, pastel pencil-and-watercolor images of lounging and rowdy housecleaning emphasize the bond between Little Fox and his dad. Best for lap sharing. Gillian Engberg
