Fox the Tiger

I don’t often review easy reader books, however, Corey R. Tabor‘s Fox the Tiger made me and my family laugh aloud. Laughing is a precious thing, and besides, this book covers a theme we all know about: wanting to be someone else. In Fox’s case, he wants to be a Tiger so he paints on stripes and insists he is Tiger. Turtle follows suit and becomes Race Car. Rabbit becomes Robot.

I won’t tell you what happens next, but the plot does come full circle, and all of this with short sentences, limited vocabulary, and plenty of subtext. This book won the 2019 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award.

Learning to read was never so much fun!
