Little Fox cuddled up to Mama Fox one night and said sleepily, “Mama, tell me again about the day I came home.”
“Oh yes,” Mama said with a smile. “That is my favorite story of all. When God found us you, it made me the happiest mother in the world.”
This book is about a Mother Fox retelling the story to her baby fox of her journey of waiting, wondering, and dreaming of the day she would be a mother. It didn’t come easily to her she had to wait a long time and see other animals and their families. The mother Fox had faith that she would one day be a mother to a baby fox. Finally her dream came true!
I like how this book shows how much we wait and wanted our children before they came. It also discusses why their “first mother” placed them in their family. It touches on many topics and opens up the conversation of adoption for children. This will quickly become a favorite in your child's book collection!
