A Kit Story
Farrell, Alison and Tracy, Kristen

I am a fox. Do you see me?

See the world through a fox kit’s eyes in a charming book about finding your place in the world. Over the course of four seasons, Kit comes of age in the forest. In spring, she gambols. In autumn, she races. In summer, she sneaks and slinks. But with her mama, she will always be a little kit.

This is the second in a series of board books that pairs Kristen Tracy’s enchanting, playful text with Alison Farrell’s sweet, endearing art for an adorable treatment of everyone’s favorite topic: baby animals!
