Summary
Young readers are invited to join a determined fox as she sets out to find her dinner in this simple, stylish introduction to light and dark.

Fox is hungry. She waits until dark, then emerges from her den to hunt for food. Follow her as she pads through the city streets and learns about sunlight, moonlight, and electric light. Shadows grow along alleys and reflections bounce off store windows as Fox moves through patches of light and dark. Using simple, clear language and beautiful illustrations, this gentle story is the perfect introduction to light and dark for budding scientists.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Fox leaves her den at nightfall and crosses the city park, looking for food. She chases a mouse down the sidewalk, but can't catch it. The sight of a fox in a shop window distracts her, but when she steps toward it, her head bumps the glass. Soon she sniffs out a barbecue fire and finds some food that was dropped on the ground. Dinner! The moon illuminates the park as the fox carries the food home. From the First Science Storybook series, this picture book offers an interesting tale while integrating elements of a science theme: light. While Fox explores the night, different lights illuminate the scenes. An introductory note suggests that adults use the story to talk about concepts such as daylight (from the sun), moonlight (sunlight bouncing off the moon), streetlights (electricity), fire, shadows, and mirrors. And after the story, optional questions prompt children to consider those ideas. The text is very accessible, while the attractive mixed-media artwork uses color and light effectively to illustrate the narrative and support the science theme as well.--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2018 Booklist"
