It is Valentine’s Day, and a little fox has a special treat for a Valentine. The fox has many friends, and they all have so many good qualities. Among other things, they are “sweet,” “huggable,” “kind,” and “loveable. The fox’s friends are all special, and it is impossible to choose just one Valentine. Thankfully, there is a very simple solution to this problem.

This charming little heart-shaped board book would make a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for a young child. Its small size, heart-shaped format, and cunning little illustrations makes this title especially appealing to the very young.
