FOXES by Kay McDearmon


Email this review


The latest of McDearmon's undemanding animal introductions looks at the different species of fox--red, gray, kit, and Arctic--tracing the life cycle of the red fox and reporting on the appearance, habitat, food, and habits of each type. ""The fox is a member of the dog family"" is McDearmon's first sentence, orienting the most uninformed reader; and later, to avoid possible confusion, she points out that the red fox is not really red, and the gray fox can have reddish sides. Details are manageably few, clear, and pointed, and the photos are selected and placed to supplement the text.
