a second chance

When a fox appears in a story, what comes to mind? That he’s likely to steal eggs from the henhouse? That he’s someone you can’t trust? In this month’s tale “Mr. Fox’s Surprise” (pages 26 to 30), the fox politely asks his neighbor, Mr. Pig, for some eggs . . . and a few other ingredients, too, much to Mr. Pig’s growing dismay. But by the end of the story, we discover that Mr. Fox has been working hard to create a delicious birthday treat for his neighbor. The author gives Mr. Fox a better reputation than foxes often have in children’s literature. So you can use this story as a springboard to discuss the importance of giving friends a second chance. It’s good to be reminded that if a friend…

time to move

Tex and Indi’s family was spending a day at the beach. The twins and their sister, Arizona, were exploring some tide pools. “Look!” said Tex, pointing to a shell. “How can that little shell move all by itself?” “That little shell has a little somebody inside,” said Arizona. “A little hermit crab!” “There’s another tiny one,” said Indi. “And there’s a great big one,” said Tex. “We’ve been studying hermit crabs at school,” said Arizona. “Whenever they grow too big for their shell houses, they look around till they find a bigger one to move into.” “It would be pretty neat if people could do that,” said Tex. “What if every year on our birthdays we got a brand-new little house to carry around?” said Indi. “That would be so cool,” said Tex. “But where would we put…

who is it?

Spunky and Pepe were taking a walk and playing the guessing game called I Spy. It was Spunky’s turn to choose something. “I spy with my little eye,” he said. “¿Es un animal?” asked Pepe. “Yes, it’s an animal,” said Spunky. Pepe looked around. There were so many animals in the rain forest! “¿Es grande?” he asked. “No, it’s not big,” said Spunky. “¿Puede volar?” Pepe asked. “Yes, it can fly,” said Spunky. “¿Es azul?” asked Pepe. “Yes, it’s blue,” said Spunky. “¡Es esa mariposa!” said Pepe. “No, it’s not that butterfly,” said Spunky. Pepe was confused. The butterfly could fly. It was blue and small. There weren’t any other animals like that. Pepe looked and looked. And then he smiled. “¿Es anaranjado y amarillo?” he asked. “Yes, it’s orange and yellow,” said Spunky. “¡Soy yo!” said Pepe. “Yes, it’s you!” said Spunky. ¿Es un animal?…

Not last night but the night before, Mr. Fox came to my back door. “Hi, neighbor,” he said. “Hello to you. I need some sugar. A cup or two.” Not last night but the night before, Mr. Fox came to my back door. “Hi, neighbor,” he said. “Don’t like to beg. But could you give me one big egg?” Not last night but the night before, Mr. Fox came to my back door. “Hi, neighbor,” he said. “Pardon the hour. I’d like to borrow some of your flour.” Not last night but the night before, Mr. Fox came to my back door. “Hi, neighbor,” he said. “Now, don’t do flips. Do you have any chocolate chips?” Not last night but the night before, Mr. Fox came to my back door. “Hi, neighbor,” he said. “For goodness’ sake. I forgot. Got coconut flakes?” Just last night, NOT…
