‘Little White Fox’ guide

Posted by on February 17, 2012 in Featured, Iditarod, Little White Fox, Site News, Special Events | Comments Off

Teachers, librarians, parents and caregivers can use this guide to help them with the “Little White Fox” reading project here at Junior Dispatch.

This reading project began on February 27, 2012, but you can work on it any time.

Please check back on this page for updates as we haven’t processed all the chapters thus far.


We will update this index as the story is posted. There are 18 chapters in the book.


We’ve posted a few other articles related to this reading project.


We’ve made a few coloring pages for this series. You can make these foxes any color you want since it’s not much fun coloring with white crayons!


You can read and/or download the entire book in advance at Project Gutenberg.


On Sunday, March 11, the Junior Dispatch will post a biography of Roy J. Snell. You can read the original text of the 1941 article here.


Each chapter includes four vocabulary words. Here is the list so far:
