What's that bushy-tailed animal scampering up a tree? It's a gray fox--the only canine that is as comfortable in a tree as it is on the ground. Mother foxes make their dens inside fallen logs or high off the ground in hollow trees. Inside the den, the mother gives birth to her tiny, helpless kits. As the kits get bigger and stronger, they wrestle with one another and pounce on their mother's tail, gaining the skills they need to become great hunters. In this coming-of-age introduction to gray foxes, readers will see how these pups learn how to catch prey and live as adult foxes. The lively text, colorful pages, and exquisite photos are sure to delight and engage emergent readers.
