Shelter

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Qin Leng. Two bundled-up bear brothers seek shelter from a blizzard. The other animals, ensconced in their comfortable homes, refuse to house the strangers, but a young fox takes pity and gives them a lantern. The bears build a humble snow shelter, and when the fox family's home collapses, Little Fox's generosity is repaid. Expressive pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings deepen this quiet fable, translated from the French.
