Zoe finds a lone fawn in the forest and helps search for its mother.

Repetition of phrased questions will enhance success for beginning readers while creating a playful rhythm for young listeners.

This sweet story is by Catherine Jameson, a mother who studied Children's Fiction Writing at the En'owkin Centre's Indigenous Creative Writing Graduate Program.
