“Where do I sleep? In a den underground,
Lined with velvety grass–it’s here I’ll be found.
In a russet red coat with sooty black socks
And bright golden eyes, I’m a baby Red Fox.”
"The illustrations in soft pastels are the perfect accompaniment for this gentle text about the animals of the Pacific Northwest…. The soft greens, gentle blues, and cozy browns will make children want to reach out and 'pet' the book. The simple text isThis tender pair [with Why Do I Sing?] should make lovely bedtime additions. Gentle verses describe the sleeping and singing habits of various animals. Each of the illustrations contains the name of the animal in question. Soft and sweet yet beautifully textured, the images are lovely and will have readers poring over them.
