Wow, what a cute book...I stumbled across this book on here, we have the requisite "Goodnight Moon", but I was never really blown away by it. This book had such good reviews and the story sounded intriguing, so I thought we would give it a try. The furry cover is so cute. My daughter and I always touch the furry belly before reading it. We read it several times a day, usually! The illustrations are just lovely, I honestly don't think Margaret Wise Brown wouldn't be held in such high esteem if she didn't align herself with such talented illustrators.

The story is just cute and curious, about a little "fur child" spending a day in the "wild wood". I just love how that sounds. He has a Mom and Dad that love him, he goes out by himself on an adventure, then returns home at sunset for a meal and to be tucked in and sang to by his furry parents. There is a little song at the end that is kind of hilarious, it doesn't really rhyme or make sense, I think that is what I love about it.

This book doesn't have the patronizing tone so many young children's books possess -this book doesn't talk down to your child- it's more like, of course after your Mom gives you breakfast, you go out in the world and explore all day. LOL, if only. I just love that notion. Very unique.

I read a lot of books to my 4-year-old twins. Most of the books are okay to begin with but tire me quickly. The Little Fur Family, considered a classic, is easily my favorite. More than any book, it captures the magic of childhood. The illustrations are perfect. I'm 52 and there's a good chance I came across this as a kid, but honestly I don't have a specific memory of this little fur family child who wanders into the forest and finds enchantment before coming home. No plot in this book, but its depiction of the sacredness of life without being sanctimonious has a glowing effect on me, long after I read it to my girls. Highly recommended.

I have purchased this little book for each one of my children and now I am buying this book for each one of my grandchildren. This little book is so dear to my heart as my father use to read it to my sisters and I each night before bed. The illustrations are adorable and I promise this will become one of your child's favorites as well.

Same illustrator also I believe. The story is so little kid and family cozy. Simply told and rhythmic. I love the adorable colored illustrations. Especially the mother washing the little one's ears and he's kind of squirmy and impatient. What makes this edition especially holdable and especially in winter, is the soft fur on the cover. I was hoping this was the minature tiny fur edition, but it's regular size and still good. When I taught both boys and girls wanted to hold this book and read it.

This was my son's favorite book growing up. I have such sweet memories of cuddling up together and reading it countless times. He recently had his first child, and I wanted to get him a copy to have. I was a little hesitant about the book because the cover was not the same as the original, but it ended up being even better with the "fur" on it's tummy. It is a quality book that will last for many years!

I'm a huge fan of Margaret Wise Brown; her gentle prose/poetry children's books are just the thing for calming down a fidgety child at bedtime, and are a pleasure to read aloud. This special edition is out of print, but should be brought back. The book itself is covered in (fake) soft fur, and that detail gives it a magical quality that makes it even more special. I got this for my granddaughter, as my daughter wore her own childhood copy out and wanted one to share with her own baby. If you can find it, buy it.

One of my favorites as a child. I was so happy when I saw it available. Such a cute story. I love reading it to my toddler and she loves feeling the new furry cover.
Great little book! My daughter had been talking about this book and really wanted a copy....she is almost 24 years old! But a very dear friend of hers used to read it to her when my daughter was younger, that friend is now deceased at the young age of 22 years old. R.I.P Jane. So it really meant a lot to my daughter when I saw it and purchased it.
