By Catherine Jameson & Julie Flett
Zoe and her father are delighted to come across a fawn in the forest. But the fawn is alone--where is its mother? Join Zoe on her quest for the deer, as she encounters animals and learns their Okanagan (syilx) names along the way. 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.
