Description

A powerful story about the importance of generosity, teaching us that kindness begets kindness, Céline Claire and Qin Leng’s deluxe fifth anniversary edition of the award-winning picture book Shelter features a larger size, cloth spine, and digitally enhanced colors.

A big storm is about to hit the forest! As each of the animal families scramble to gather supplies and take shelter from the oncoming wind and snow, two mysterious figures appear in the distance. Watching skeptically from their windows, unsure of the strangers’ motives, all of the families close their doors and their hearts to the strangers’ pleas for help to weather the storm . . . until Little Fox bravely steps up!

With one very simple act of kindness, Little Fox extends an olive branch that will keep the two strangers—and his own family—from being left out in the cold.

STARRED REVIEW *“A beautiful tale that reads like a fable to teach giving and kindness.” —Kirkus Reviews
