Fox in Socks

By: Mackenzie Proctor

"Knox in box.

Fox in socks."

The Story "Fox in Socks" has a LOT of rhyming words and tongue twisters in it. There are two characters in the story which are Mr. Fox and Mr. Knox. Mr. Fox is basically a rhyme expert and he is trying to get Mr. Knox to say a whole lot of rhymes. Mr. Knox says that he can not say the rhymes, that his tongue is not slick enough for them. Mr. Fox continues urging Mr. Knox into the rhymes so that eventually Mr. Knox in the end is tricked into saying a rhyme without even knowing it!

This Quote shows how Mr. Fox wants to continue to help Mr. Knox.. You can see that Mr. Fox is taking his time and trying to persuade Mr. Knox in to rhyming in the picture. The message in this is never give up. Mr. Fox in the end was successful in getting his goal of getting Mr. Knox to say a tongue twister. Mr. Fox is granted with satisfaction, we can receive the same satisfaction in hard work with good grades and a successful future.

In this quote it shows that you should believe in yourself. Mr. Knox doesn't think that he can be so slick as to be able to rhyme so well. In the end Mr. Knox actually ends up being successful because of Mr. Fox. Typically in life if you don't believe in yourself you aren't as likely to succeed. Believing in yourself can make you a more successful and out going person.

In the story "Fox in Socks" Mr. Fox uses a whole lot of persistence. This quote shows that this isn't the first time that he has tried to get Mr. Knox to rhyme. The message is if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Mr. Fox's consistency and persistence encouraged Mr. Knox into doing a tongue twister. If you fail the first time in life, continue to try! Failure is NOT an option!!! Keep on trying, it won't hurt, it will only make you a stronger person!!!

Do you believe in yourself when trying something hard?

I really like your implications. These remind me a lot of the persistence in "Green Eggs and Ham". I try to believe in myself that way it gives me the confidence to try.

Sometimes I do not believe in myself when I am doing something hard. I try my best and I try to stay confident but sometimes my confidence slips and I feel really discourage, but that doesn't mean I give up.

I agree with your implication that you can't say you can't do something if you haven't tried. I agree with this because in life you hear a lot of people saying that they can't do something when they haven't tried. I believe in my self when trying something hard because if I don't say I can then I won't succeed in whatever it is.

You should always believe in yourself when trying something hard because if you don't believe that you can do it, then you probably wont be able to do it. You should always try your hardest to succeed.

Great presentation and great implications. This story reminds me of Green eggs and ham, and how sam-i-am is trying to get Max to eat the food, and the fox is trying to get knox to rhyme. When something is hard, I always keep trying my best at it, and If I can't do it, it is ok if i tried my best. My dad's motto is "Do you're best and forget the rest,", so just try you're hardest at something, and you will most likely, eventually succeed.

I agree with all of your implications, especially the one about believing in yourself. Most people just give up on what they don't know if they can do or not. I often fit in the category of not believing in myself when something is hard, but I never actually give up.

Yes, it just might take a lot of time and effort but I always try to do my best on everything, even if its hard.

I liked your implications, but I think persistence is a common implication for Dr. Seuss books
