Although fennec foxes are the smallest kind of fox, they have enormous ears. The little canines make their homes in the scorching sandy deserts of North Africa. Fennecs dig deep underground dens, in which they rest during the heat of the day. At night, when it's cooler, they emerge to find plants, eggs, and small animals to eat. Fennec fox mothers use the den to give birth to and raise adorable baby foxes each spring. In this coming-of-age introduction to fennec foxes, readers will see how these pups learn how to find food and stay cool in the hot desert. The lively text, colorful pages, and exquisite photos are sure to delight and engage emergent readers.
