The Fox went out on a chilly night

Another childhood story. The Fox went out on a chilly night is an old song put into the pages of this book filled with beautiful illustrations of autumn and country life.

The fox leaves his home on a chilly night and goes into the town to catch some dinner. The farmers wife hears that the fox has run off with their goose and raises an alarm while the fox runs back to his home.

It's a cute short song worthwhile to teach to your child but the illustrations of the book are my favorite part. It seems to be the perfect book to read after the harvest when the air is turning chilly and the leaves have changed their colors.

Take a listen to the song sung by the oh-so-awesome Burl Ives:
