When two kids’ books arrived for reviewing, I knew just where to turn. Nine-year-old grandson Addison Mellor loves to read. And although his favorite books involve galactic battles, I knew I could count on him to help Grampy with this review.
Wild Fox, by Cherie Mason, illustrated by Ellen McAllister Stammen, published by Down East Books, 2013.
“It was good because it was a true story,” says Adi. “I liked that it was in Maine.”
Me too. Mason’s small book, beautifully illustrated by Stammen, tells the story of an injured fox that Mason befriended. It’s actually a very good read even for adults, and it’s perfect for those who like to read to their kids and grandkids (and I hope that is all of you).
