From Chapter 6: Fox Foxes are shy animals which try to stay hidden most of the time. When another animal moves out of its den, foxes take over. They often have more than one den. If there is any danger, they move to a safer den.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-5. About a dozen creatures from each habitat are examined in these two titles that focus on learning about animals by examining the evidence that they have left behind. Behaviors that result in footprints, teeth marks, holes, nests, hair and fur, and remnants of meals are explained so that readers will be able to track animals by looking, listening, and smelling. Large, colorful, detailed illustrations; attractive borders; bold clear print; and clean organization will draw children into these simple books. However, the tracks included are solid and flat black and would be difficult to match to those found on the ground. Sometimes both front and back prints are depicted, sometimes only one is shown; in either case, they are not usually identified and no explanation is given as to why some tracks are surrounded by dotted lines. There are no maps or any clear explanation of where these animals are likely to be found. For a clearer look at the wildlife in a particular habitat, choose the "Look Closer" series (DK). For information on tracking animals, Millicent Selsam's simple How to Be a Nature Detective (HarperCollins, 1995) or Betsy Bowen's elegant Tracks in the Wild (Little, Brown, 1993) are better choices.?Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL
