THE FOX WISH
by Kimiko Aman, illustrated by Komako Sakai
This week's pick is from Cottager Jamie Michalak.
What's a little girl to do when she finds a family of foxes playing with her jump rope? Teach them how to use it, of course. But when one of the foxes says she wished for a jump rope of her own, the girl must make a tough decision.
Why it's on The Little Crooked Bookshelf . . .
Kindness wins in this magical tale, beautifully rendered by the talented Komako Sakai.
My favorite illustration . . .

Why kids will love it . . .Because it feels like anything can happen in this sweet story about talking, jump-roping foxes.
THE FOX WISH imparts a gentle lesson about the joy found in helping others and making their wishes come true.
