Argyle Fox by Marie Letourneau

Argyle Fox wants to play outside but his mother warns him it's a windy day.  He takes his cards out anyway, makes a card tower, and watches the wind carry away his cards.

Tanglewood Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 14th.

Argyle tries three or four more games outside, but the wind ruins all of them.  He comes in disgruntled but his mother tells him to use his head and figure out how to play with the wind.

This is a sweet children's picture book.  It surprised me to see the mother fox wearing leggings.  I do but traditional children's books always have the mothers in dresses.  This was a nice change.  The illustrations are lovely and you can see the love between mother and son.

After thinking, Argyle comes up with an idea.  It works very well.  What's the wind good for?  Kite flying!
