Review: Little Fox Find Your Way Home

If you’re looking for an interactive board book for your very little one, Little Fox Find Your Way Home is the book you’re looking for.

It’s a concept book rather than a story, with a different forest creature on every page, lost and trying to find their way home.

But in the centre of the book is a sturdy plastic covered maze with a little silver ball trapped inside. 

As the kids explore the pages, they need to move the book around so the ball travels around the maze and gets each animal to where they want to go. 

While the maze doesn’t change on every page (it’s stuck to the book and each page has a hole cut into it so the kids can access it), the point where the animals are, and where home is, is always different, so the challenge changes as the kids move through the book. 

And the illustrations are simply gorgeous. Colourful, cute and funky, they will definitely draw the kids’ eyes, and with so much detail on every page, there is lots for the kids to explore.

It’s a simple board book with few words, but it’s uber engaging and the kids won’t want to let it go. And if forest creatures don’t appeal, check out Little Bee Find Your Way Home, a second book in this cool board book series.
