Summary
"A little girl is always missing out on the wonderful things her family gets to see and do, just because she is the youngest and littlest. She misses seeing shooting stars because she goes to bed too early; she can't pick the first apple of autumn because she's too short and, this morning, everyone else got to see a deer . . . except her. She goes into her backyard in search of the deer, a sugar cube tucked in her pocket. She sees a flick of brown in the orchard - is that the deer? No, it's just the neighbor's friendly dog (Shhhhh, Nala!). Is that it by the pond? No, that's just a bird, playing in the water. Just when she's about to give up, she spots a fawn, beautiful, quiet and small . . . just like her. For a tranquil and sublime moment, they look at each other, saying hello with their eyes. Then the fawn returns to its mother, and the little girl to hers. The Secret Fawn beautifully captures the power of nature to inspire children and shows how private experiences and connecting with nature can help kids cope with feeling left out."--
