Arctic Fox PupsBook - 2011
Although adult Arctic foxes have the warmest fur of any mammal and can actually sleep out in the open, they need dens to raise their pups in. So every spring, the mother and father fox move into an earthen den that they have often used year after year. There, 7 to 15 pups are born, each blind and almost helpless. For two months, both parents work continuously to keep their babies fed, bringing them lemmings every single day. Readers will see how the cute little pups soon learn to hunt and feed themselves and eventually, to move out and live on their own. Combining gorgeous photos and clear, simple text, this coming-of-age introduction to Arctic fox pups is sure to delight emergent readers.
