About this title


Not wanting to clean his fur or listen to his mother, Little Coyote runs far away and is determined to live on his own, but when he finds himself in trouble, he quickly realizes that he really should be back home with his mother after all.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2. Upset about having to wash before eating, a little coyote decides to run away. His mother reminds him to take his special medicine bag to guard him from danger. Little Coyote's magic tricks protect him against a giant goat, a buzzard, and a bear. But when he reaches a busy highway, there is nothing that can help him. Lesson learned, he goes home where he is safe. This picture book uses a contrived story and disjointed action to make the point, "there's no place like home." Some of the so-called dangers do not seem to make sense. Why would a coyote be afraid of a "grass-eating giant goat?" The items in the medicine bag are curious: corn pollen, tobacco, and an eagle feather. The illustrations are pleasing, with warm colors in golds, browns, and blues. Little Coyote has great expression, scared one moment, determined the next. However, good illustrations cannot save this book from the didactic story line. Young listeners are better served by Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny (HarperCollins, 1942).?Jane Claes, T. J. Lee Elementary School, Irving, TX
