    My first impression of this book was that it was really short, easy to read, and a perfect chapter book for a child who is just starting to read. There are three stories in the book that are each a few pages and the child can feel as though they can finish stories themselves. The first short story is about how Fox gets his little sister to help him in a race. The second story is about how a neighbor convinces him to give her his comics. Lastly, the third story is about how Fox went tricker-treating. This is considered a transitional book most likely because the sentences are longer and much more punctuation is used. The words were easy, and there were illustrations on every page that told the story. What I thought it was interesting was that the first story had the most pictures, the second story was about the same length but with fewer pictures, and the third story was the longest. The book says this could be read by a child aged 6-9, but I believe a child even younger could read it if they had the ability to do so. This would be best as a independent reading book because children would be able to get through the chapters and they can feel more accomplished when it happens. Each chapter has a lesson as well and a good lesson plan would be to talk about each lesson fox learns and the children can relate them to their own lives. Just ask the children, "Have you experienced this before?" The children would then respond and then answer how the lesson has helped them live their life. Overall a very cute book and I would recommend it to any child who is just starting to read.

    Personal Reaction-I actually liked this book. It was written for children who are in the process of reading harder books but I still enjoyed it because I thought that it was funny. Read aloud-I think that this book would be great to read aloud to your class. The element of humor would be well accepted by young students and they would really enjoy it. You might have some students that can read this book easily, so you might consider having them be the one to read it aloud to the class. I think that it would be good to introduce the concept of trickery and how to be creative. Independent Reading-I think this would also be great for students to read on their own as well as aloud. If they read this on their own, they can gauge their own progress and know what words they are struggling with and what they need to work on. Curriculum Connection-Since this book would help introduce students to trickery and creativity, you could have students create their own scenario where they would have characters trick each other or use their imaginations to make their characters outsmart each other. Literary Elements-An introduction on theme would be a good way to incorporate this book into the classroom. You could brainstorm, as a class, what they think the theme would be after they read it so that they can think about it the whole time you are reading aloud.

    Personal response:I liked this book because it shows that things don't always go as planned but that there is always good in situations. Its really fun to read and keeps you giggling. Its also relatively short and easy to read and since there are more than just one story in the book it gives the child a real sense of accomplishment in completing and reading three stories.Purpose/Use in the classroom:This would be a really good paired read. If the teacher and student could sit down together and the student read to the teacher then the teacher could see where the child's reading level is at. The teacher could also ask questions according to the student and what the student needs more help with while reading. It almost seems as if the stories throughout the book get a little (small amount) harder each time with more words, less pictures, little bit larger vocabulary etc. So as they read it gets more challenging.

    Personal Reaction: I like how fun and imaginative this story is. Fox goes on a lot of adventures and things don't always turn out the way he wants but he always finds the good in things.Read Aloud: I would read this aloud to 1st graders because it has a set vocabulary but introduces few words they won't already know. I would read this after lunch or recess to refocus them and prepare them to learn.Independent Reading: I would recommend this to 1st grade transitional readers. I think most first graders would enjoy this book because of the bright pictures, easy to read font, and funny story line.For Narrative: I would use this book to teach about syntax. This story begins to have slightly longer sentences instead of every sentence being short, and there is also a lot of dialogue included intermittently. I can begin to explain why an author might include longer sentences, to help with the flow of the book.

    Fox Outfoxed is an Easy Reader about a little boy fox and his adventures. There are three stories in the book, and each can be read separately. The first is about how Fox gets his little sister to help him in a race. The second story is about how a neighbour convinces him to give her his comics. The third story is about how Fox went tricker-treating.It is considered a Level 3 Easy Reader. The words were easy, and there were illustrations on every page. The illustrations did a good job of communicating the story. I thought it was interesting that the first story had the most pictures, the second story was about the same length but with fewer pictures, and the third story was the longest. I would recommend this to both boys and girls. The book says level 3 is for ages 6-9, but I believe it would be appropriate for a younger child if they had the reading ability.

    A Faster Fox--Fox cheats to win the Big Race by hiding his sister Louise in the engine area so she can run as fast as she can. They win the race, but when he crashes into a neighbor's flower garden no spoils go to the victor. Comic Fox--A neighbor tricks Fox out of his 10 best comic books.Fox Outfoxed--Fox and his friends go trick-or-treating and plot to get the most candy by telling Louise (dressed as a pumpkin) to remain on a park bench. When Fox returns to where he left her, all he finds is a pumpkin. He mistakenly drops the pumpkin and mourns the loss of his sister. At home he finds she's okay, but after he has promised to share his comic books with her.Funny, great reads for newly independent readers.

    4.5A fun, neat little early reader book. Think along the same lines as Amelia B. as an example. The specific draw of this story is the sibling dynamics, which should be immediately relatable to most children. A good book for either gender. The pictures interspersed helped to break the book up, but make no mistake this is not a "picture book." It's a tad too short to be a "chapter book," and by a tad I mean WAY too short. It's for the early reader you love who has grown out of normal picture books but is not ready for the challenge of chapters. A good literary stepping stone done in a way that should bring a smile to the face of the child you love. Recommended.

    This is a chapter book for beginning readers probably a high level 2 or a level 3 book for children who wants to read on their own. Three or four individual stories (as chapters) so would be easy to read a little at a time and not have to remember from chapter to chapter what happened. Fox and his friends get into various adventures and often time with a tag along annoying little sister. My 3 year old granddaughter liked this book but did start loosing interest before we were done.

    Mommy says: Really cute and funny. It's a blast to read about sneaky fox getting one-upped, repeatedly! As with all the Fox books, my 5yo enjoyed reading this to herself because it has an interesting storyline, unlike some early reading books.

    This book is good for showing how sometimes the "underdog" can come out on top if they believe in themselves and work hard towards their goal.

    Poor Fox. Having the protagonist be fooled is a good way for kids to see humor and some reality.... but still.... Poor Fox.
