My Rating: 5/5 stars
Argyle Fox, with his signature style, wants to play outside on a springtime day, but the wind is wreaking havoc with his fun and games. As soon as he builds a card tower, climbs into a giant spider web, or takes up his pirate sword, here comes the wind: Woosh!
Mama Fox tells grumpy Argyle that if he thinks long enough, he will come up with something to do. Following his mother’s suggestion and inspired by her knitting, he works all the pieces of his day together and creates the perfect solution.
The story of Argyle teaches that failure is often a path to success and celebrates perseverance, creative thinking, and an old-fashioned springtime activity.
Argyle Fox is an adorable story by author Marie Letourneau about a young fox who lives in a tree in the forest. Argyle decides he wants to play outside. Although his mother and the forest animals warn Argyle that the games he has chosen can’t be played with the wind blowing about, he still chooses to play them only to be disappointed and upset. When he comes home frustrated, his mother encourages him to think of something he can play in the wind.
This was an absolutely adorable book with beautiful illustrations. Argyle is a sweet and clever fox that when he puts his mind to it, figures a way to finally play in the wind. Ms. Letourneau is also the illustrator for the book and she did a fabulous job of creating a colorful picture book that fits perfectly with the story told. I highly recommend this book and would love to see more stories on Argyle Fox and the forest animals!
