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.
This book is a great segway to talking to young kids about the importance of taking care of wildlife, and preserving their habitats. While many areas are booming with urban growth, and are seeing the decline of wildlife areas, there are still many ways we can protect the animals that live there. Like with wildlife underpasses, like the one featured in this story, that allows safe passages for wildlife to travel freely between their woodland homes, and new places. This book is great for elementary school age children who are studying wildlife, and their habitats.
