Friendly Foxes is a children's picture book written and illustrated by Jesse Bettio. The story follows two foxes who have had many adventures together and now come to a crossroads in their journey. They mutually agree to go their separate ways, each selecting a unique path. As their relationship dynamics change, they promise to always cherish the memories they shared and remain thankful for the bond they formed. Their cubs are the most precious treasures they have from their journey together, and sharing their separation with them evokes unfamiliar emotions. Thus, helping their little ones navigate the changes in their lives becomes a priority for them. Find out how the Friendly Foxes assist their cubs in adapting to the new situation.

Friendly Foxes is a touching story that deals with a couple's divorce and how it affects their children. The author, Jesse Bettio, presents this sensitive topic in a way that children can understand and connect with. Kids need to realize that not every marriage ends happily and that it is not their fault. Assuring them that they are loved and cared for is essential for children's mental and emotional well-being. The fact that the author wrote the book based on personal experience adds to its impact and authenticity. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as it has a beautiful message and colorful illustrations that are sure to capture children's attention. The Mommy and Daddy Fox and their kids were portrayed perfectly with clear facial expressions and the consistent green background complemented the foxes' red fur. I highly recommend reading this book with your children to help them understand divorce and learn how to cope with the changes that come with it.
