A parent deer teaches their child about the world, and how each little raindrop and leaf is important and special. The little deer learns that each creature has a responsibility to appreciate and protect the world. The deer marvel at a field full of butterflies, and a mighty tree grown from a tiny acorn. They see a beautiful waterfall, and whales in the ocean.
I loved the soft illustrations in this picture book! The forest scenery is beautiful and it was fun to search for all the little woodland creatures in the background. There are mice, foxes, birds, bears, insects, squirrels, and all kinds of little animals living and working in the forest. The colors are bright and inviting, and I was completely enchanted with the lovely artwork.
The story is told in rhyme, and I was happy to see that the verses are well-written. The rhythm flows nicely, and the rhyming words fit together well. I can be very picky about rhyming text in picture books, but this text was just right and pleasant to read.
Such a sweet and calming story with an important message!
