Format: Paperback
The Little Fur Family is the best of childhood, remembered as wild sights and cozy feelings. To be able to boil the spiritual and emotional experience of raw child-ness down to the essential syrup is the perfection of Margaret Wise Brown. The best comparison would be having to condense a biographical novel to a haiku, and Brown does it in the same seductive style as the sea to draw the eyes, a river to the ears, and a blue sky to the deepest imagination. The story is told through the mind of a little fur child, who lives with his family in the wood. As he travels in his world that day, little wonder that it takes the reader, child or adult, to their own memories. Even though my bookshelves house books by Chomsky, Foucault, and Mahfouz, The Little Fur Family is always my heartfelt favorite. This book is a sweet story without having the backlash of crawling around in the muck of saccharine characters or the rabid commercialism of children's stories that have action figures or theme parks. If this story stimulates your appetite, I also recommend Goodnight Moon, another Margaret Wise Brown classic

I discovered the Little Fur Family at the home of my piano teacher, who easily could have stepped from the pages of one of Margaret Wise Brown's books. (Maybe whispering "hush.") The teeny, fur- covered edition is the one to have, in my view. When it was reissued (I think around 1985) and I spied it in a bookshop, I instantly was transported back to my childhood. I bought it and kept it in a safe place for nearly 12 years, until I first read it to my baby daughter. I keep it in her her room, in its box. After we read it, she cuddles it until she falls asleep. Every page is a delight, from the hollow tree the family lives in, to the teeny tiny fur animal who gets kissed on his little fur nose, to the wonderful supper and lullaby the fur child receives from his parents at the end of a day in the wild wood. I wish that this book (and Goodnight Moon) were issued to every child upon birth.

Initially put off by the miniature edition I'd ordered by mistake, I now must recommend it. We have an older hardback that my daughters love, and this small, fur covered version is another hit. My 15 month old loves to hold a little book in her hands that feels 'all soft and all warm'.

Format: Hardcover
Little Fur Family was originally published in 1946. It was written by Margaret Wise Brown (Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny) and illustrated by Garth Williams. The book tells the story of a day in the life of a litle fur bear who lives in his little fur world. The text is told in a rhyming format adored by most young children. Its miniature size appeals to those who are miniature themselves! In addition, you should purchase the copy that has the faux fur cover. It makes the book as sweet and comforting in texture as it does in content. A great stocking stuffer and a wonderful present for any time of the year...Little Fur Family is a sure hit.

The calm and soothing nature of this book makes it a great one to read when sending your little ones off to sleep. When I was a little girl, my mother read this book to me often. Now that I'm a mother of two girls-ages 8 and 3-it's a great excuse for me to read one of my favorite childrens book. My girls especially love it when I sing the lullaby at the end of the book. Hopefully, this book has become a favorite of my girls, that they will take with them through life the way I have.

I am 40 years old now and can't remember when I couldn't read. I have been an avid book collector all my life. This is one of my favorites. I found this to have action and adventure, mixed with cuddly and cute. I have my original copy from the 60's as well as a new one ordered from Amazon.com. I think the illustrations are wonderful. I can close my eyes and be in the forest with the Little Fur Family any time. Wonderful for children of all ages.

One of the greatest joys of my life was sitting at the dining room table watching my 7-year-old granddaughter reading The Little Fur Family to my 4-year-old grandson while the two older grandchildren joined in singing the little song. I shall never forget how much love they showed for each other as so beautifully depicted in Margaret Wise Brown's extraordinararily charming little book. There is no other children's book quite like it.

I remember holding my furry copy of this book against my cheek after my mother tucked me in at night. Now my niece does the same with her (fake fur, as befits the times) copy. A simple tale of daily discovery is magical in the hands of Wise Brown and Williams, and the ending is a perfect note for sending a little one off to sleep. (I made up a tune for the song!)
