From Storytime

My ears are huge and fuzzy by Jessica Rudolph

In this book, young readers will learn all the different traits of a particular animal, and then get to guess what it is.



          Five little foxes all lined up in a row

          Five little foxes, so clever don’t you know?

          Suddenly one fox runs into the trees.

          Now how many foxes do you see? (Count down to zero)

Outfoxed by Mike Twohy

Fox breaks into a henhouse to steal a chicken for dinner but grabs Duck, instead--a clever fowl that pretends to be a dog.

A surprising lesson about the importance of listening to one's inner gosling ensues when a very hungry fox issues a dinner invitation to a very plump goose.


FOX HAS GOT A LONG RED TAIL (From Storytime Sparks)

          Fox has got a long red tail, long red tail, long red tail.

          Fox has got a long red tail, Shake that tail now!

          Other verses:

          Fox has got a pointy nose... wiggle that nose

          Fox has got two front paws… clap those paws

          Fox has got pointy ears… twitch those ears

          Fox has got big bright eyes… blink those eyes

          Fox has got long sharp teeth… bite those teeth

The noisy foxes by Amy Husband

A very noisy family of three foxes decides to move from the noisy city to the countryside to try being quiet, and have a hard time trying to find a home that suits them.

Little Fox tells her mother all the frightening things she will see and do when she travels to the end of the world.

FOXY FOXY (From Sunflower Storytime)

          Foxy, foxy, turn around. Foxy, foxy, touch the ground.
          Foxy, foxy, dance on your toes. Foxy, foxy, touch your nose.

          Foxy, foxy, jump up now. Foxy, foxy, take a bow.
          Foxy, foxy, oh no, don’t sneeze! (ah-choo) Foxy, foxy, sit down please.

How to find a fox by Nilah Magruder

Equipped with a camera and determination, an adventurous little girl tries to track down an elusive red fox, which proves more difficult than she thought.

The sky is falling! by Mark Teague
