Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2An engaging easy reader about a young girl's encounter with an abandoned fawn. Jeannie, who lives on a farm in Canada, recounts the events of one exciting day. When she repeatedly hears a soft bleating coming from the forest beyond her family's fields, the child and her mother track the sound to a fawn who is alone in the underbrush. Readers learn, as Jeannie does, that it is not wise to approach or handle wildlife. As most young children would, the girl dreams of raising him, but her parents persuade her that it is best to take him to "a place where they care for wild animals." In the final chapter, Jeannie names the fawn Forest as a reminder of his first home. The simple story is told in an unaffected voice that allows readers to follow events without distraction. The countryside and woods are brought to life in rich green and brown hues by the illustrations that give many visual clues to the text. Nicely done and sure to appeal to animal-loving beginning readers.Maura Bresnahan, Topsfield Town Library, MA
Kirkus Reviews
This heartwarming I Can Read provides a deft balance between the basic wording required for beginning readers and a realistic scenario about a girl's awakening to nature. One day while planting potatoes on her parent's farm, Jeannie hears a cry coming from the forest. She and her mother investigate and discover a newborn fawn. When night falls and it becomes apparent that the fawn has been abandoned, Jeannie and her parents take it home. To her disappointment, Jeannie learns from her parents that this abandoned baby will go to a place that cares for other wild animals. Godwin's uncomplicated sentences and engaging plot will encourage even the uncertain readers. Coupled with Schuett's warm and softly drawn illustrationsþsome of the finest she's doneþthis gentle tale delights. (Picture book. 5-9)
