This book has quickly become a family favorite--and this new format with padded covers and cardstock pages will become an enduring classic of the genre.

As a poem about a mama fox's unconditional love for her cub, this story describes the many moods of all children--from happy to frightened, bashful to silly, and more--and reassures them of parents' abiding affection and approval. Truly remarkable watercolor illustrations from David McPhail, sensitively wrought and never saccharine, are the perfect complement to Liza Baker's rhythmic, rhyming text.

I like this because his mom will always love him no matter what. He also loves her, too, and shows he cares. I know he cares because he shows that he cares. I care for my mom 24/7 even when she is sick. I help her a lot because I show her I do really care about her. Stellaisha, age 10.
