Deer and their fawns, or babies, live in forests across North America. Children will be delighted by the wonderful photographs in this simple introduction to these loveable hoofed animals. Easy-to-understand text explains how a fawn is born, how the color and spots on its coat help camouflage it in the forest, and how some mothers care for their fawns for up to two years. Beautiful images feature white-tailed deer and mule deer and introduce a few lesser-known deer, such as pudus, which are the smallest deer in the world!
