Little Fox, Lost by Nicole Snitselaar, Alicia Padrón #BookReview @PajamaPress1

Little Fox s paw prints make such beautiful pictures in the newly fallen snow. Left here, right there, around that fallen branch he scatters them throughout the forest until, too late, he finds he can t retrace his steps back home. Lost and afraid, Little Fox wants to agree when a kind, old owl offers to fly ahead and guide him. But Mama Fox has warned him often: If ever you are lost, my child, / don t let a stranger guide you. / Be still and I will search the wild / until I am beside you. In gentle, expressive text, Nicola Snitselaar spins a tale that goes far beyond a simple stranger danger warning. Her Little Fox, equipped with his own ingenuity as well as his mother s wisdom, cleverly finds a way for the other animals to attract Mama Fox s attention while keeping himself safe. Alicia Padron renders this resilient Little Fox and his forest companions in soft watercolors, their rounded shapes and endearing features easing any anxiety that little listeners might feel about being lost."

When I was a little girl, I spent hours looking with wonder at the pictures in books. I used to imagine what it would be like to dive in one of the pages and live inside the story of the book. Now I get to illustrate those pictures for a living!

I like to paint with watercolor and use the computer to finish my illustrations. I work in a tiny blue studio with a whippet by my side and a doxie on my lap. 

I hope you and your kids enjoy my books as much as I do creating them. 
Feel free to watch my video below.

This was such a cute little book, with colorful classic artwork. Its gives little kids the right information about talking to strangers and what to do if they get lost.
