When his radio breaks, a little fox finds that the forest is filled with its own rhythm and music—drip drops and chirp chirps—in this picture book that gently introduces the concept of mindfulness.
A little fox is digging for food when—OUCH! What is that?—the fox finds a box! When the fox brings the box home to his animal friends—and turns a funny-looking knob—the box starts to sing, and music fills the forest. Everyone agrees that it feels nice. Day and night, they listen to the box’s songs, until, one day, it goes quiet. No matter what they try, they just can’t get the box to sing again. The animals stop swishing their tails and flapping their wings…. But, in the silence, the fox hears the drip-drop rhythm of melting icicles and the thump thump of a beaver’s tail and comes to realize music is everywhere. The noises of the forest and the animals build into a symphony, until, eventually, everyone joins together in a joyous dance party.
From the author of fan favorite Douglas, You Need Glasses!, here is a wonderful celebration of music—and appreciating the little things that have surrounded you all along.
