Krazy Kinders~ Story Illustration "One Fine Day"

 We are pretending to be story illustrators! We are drawing an illustration to go along with the Caldecott Medal winning book "One Fine Day" by Nonny Hogrogian.
The story is a retelling of an Armenian folktale about a fox who steels milk from a farm woman's bucket. Angry, she cuts off his tail and with lots of effort -and the kindness of others- he finally gets it back.
 The children only looked at the illustration above and did not hear the story until after their drawings were complete. They were to decide for themselves what the fox may have done to make the farm woman so angry that she would cut off his tail!
How cute are those busy little kindergarten hands?
