“One fine day a fox traveled through the great forest. When he reached the other side he was very thirsty.” The jaunty red fox stole milk from an old farm woman, lost his tail under the annoyed woman’s knife, and spent the day bargaining to get it back. This humorous retelling of a favorite Armenian folktale is a story small children will follow with ease.

    " Cumulative story from an Armenian folktale that won the Caldecott in 1971. Not a big fan of stories that involve peril - this one starts with the fox's tail getting lopped off by a woman with a large knife. I've been accused of misunderstanding the whole depth and importance of difficult situations in children's books, I get it people, I just have children with my sensibilities who were easily upset by these things...so whatever, but don't love it. "

    " There are several morals in this story and this is why I like it so much. Plus, the illustrations are very bright and pretty. The story teaches about responsibility of our own actions, and the consequences of not being fully thoughtful when interacting with other people. It also teaches about the importance of being considered about other people's work, and all the effort they might have made. Similarly, there is a moral about how important it is to know where our food comes from. Suggested age: 6 and older. "

    " A beautifully written Armenian folk tale. Can be used to teach multiculturalism. The story teaches ethics and the consequence of stealing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 1/30/2014

    " This is a classic tale, a format that is fairly common, with one action building upon and dependent upon another until you get to the end. It is entertaining and has the familiar and comforting repetition that so many children like. Nice, colorful illustrations, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 1/22/2014

    " Fine illustrations, but the Armenian folk tale involving a fox losing his tail is not fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lesley | 1/20/2014

    " I wasn't excited by the illustrations or the story in One Fine Day. Although it came out when I was in 1st or 2nd grade, I don't ever remember seeing this book before, which tells me something, too. "

    " This is a great book to use to challenge students with sequencing or to discuss cause and effect. Each new event causes something else to happen because almost every thing the fox encounters need something in order for them to trade with him, so he can eventually get his tail back. "

    " This is a book that shows both good and bad sides to people. In the end all it takes is one good person to change the day of another. I absolutley adored this book and all the different illistrations in it. I can see why it is a Caldecott Winner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/27/2013

    " This story builds on itself, adding another phrase with each page. It reverses, visiting what was added in the ending pages. It is long when compared to modern day picture books "

    " Fun to read out-loud. I enjoyed going through the list of "Please do this so I can do that and then that and then..." over and over, adding something each time. And I tried to say it faster each time, which made my preschooler laugh. "
