Argyle Fox, with his signature style, wants to play outside on a springtime day, but the wind is wreaking havoc with his fun and games. As soon as he builds a card tower, climbs into a giant spider web, or takes up his pirate sword, here comes the wind: Woosh!
Mama Fox tells grumpy Argyle that if he thinks long enough, he will come up with something to do. Following his mother’s suggestion and inspired by her knitting, he works all the pieces of his day together and creates the perfect solution.
The story of Argyle teaches that failure is often a path to success and celebrates perseverance, creative thinking, and an old-fashioned springtime activity.
Argyle Fox wants to play outside despite the heavy winds that are whipping down the mountainside. Even though he is warned about the heavy winds – Argyle still heads out to play. He tries to build the world’s largest tower with his playing cards, and the wind blows it away. He makes numerous attempts to play with his other toys but to no avail. Frustrated with the events of the day, Argyle vows never to play outside again. Mama Fox advises Argyle to try to find some games he can play with despite the heavy wind instead of giving up.
The Message of The Story: No matter what life throws out at us – we can always turn a negative into a positive. Our circumstances don’t define our outcome. This is a great message for kids of all ages to keep trying and never give up.
