I have explained the fox thing to him several times, but it just really bugs him. But he is th kind of kid who sees things in black and white. We have to be careful about saying we might do something (like, "Oh, we should go to the park this afternoon,") because he thinks it is a promise! So...in his eyes it just doesn't make sense for the work fox to be the x word. I must confess that there are some days we just skip the song to make life easier

Wild Fox by Cherie Mason
Flossie and the Fox by Patricia McKissack **
Grandfather Tang's Story Ann Tompert
The Adventures of Reddy Fox Thornton Burgess
**this book is absolutely precious! It is written in dialect and was so fun to do with dd. The main character, Flossie, out foxes the fox - and my daughter was delighted when she realized that.
