This was one of those interesting variations of Bambi that was made from the movie and not from the actual book thus giving children a chance to read instead of to just watch a movie. That said although there were a few scenes from the actual movie a lot of the plot was added in without looking to the movie to modernize the book while the notorious death scene was also left out.

The book is a bunch more educational than some of the other Disney books while showing the little fawn not only learn

Bambi Grows Up is exactly what the title would lead you to believe; it is an extension of the beloved story of the baby deer, Bambi. This story includes all of the characters from the movie and shows their adventures as they grow up in the forest. As compared to the other books in the Disney series, this book has much more intricate illustrations. Even the end pages of this book are full of color and portraits of each character. This book also does a fairly good job of “showing” the reader what ...more

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

I'm in my basement re-reading my favorite childhood books. I'm such a Disney fan even now; with that being said, I can see the art isn't really that well done, and they didn't include the death of Bambi's mother. He just grows up and she's just gone. But hey, I didn't really need to experience that part again anyhow.

This book is based on parts of Disney's Bambi.

Bambi grows up from a little fawn into a young and handsome deer.

This book does not mention Bambi's mother's death so if you want to enjoy the story without the sadness, this book is a good option. It ends before the forest fire as well.

My two-year-old daughter and my husband read this book together every night. It's best for kids around 2 and up.

Love this one.The art work is fabulous and in this version of the story Bambi's mother doesn't die or at least it doesn't get mentioned.

A cute version of the classic tale of Bambi. Not all children can handle the death of Bambi's mother, so this version would be best for them.
