I can still recall how eagerly I popped in my cassette tape of Fantastic Mr. Fox as I went to bed every night for weeks (yes, I’m that old). Unsurprisingly, I still have a special place in my heart for a good story about foxes. These ones have a passion for gardening. Does it get any more delightful?

It has been more than thirty years since my dad first read me this book and then read it again...and again. As a Little Critter, I was constantly frustrated by being told no, whether I wanted to keep the stray dog I found in the neighborhood or paint the furniture with bubblegum nail polish. This book soothed my soul and gave me the language I needed to talk about my feelings. Perfect for the Little Critter in your life who may need help with the concept of "just because you can doesn't mean you should."
