This is another animal themed Show Me Readers Award nominee, but thankfully it's light on the sap that many of the animal books come with.

The book never says anywhere that it's based on a true story, but I'm guessing it is, since the author also the narrator and it seems as though she's retelling an experience she had on her farm.

This is a 2011 MO Show Me Readers Award Nominee. I am assuming it is based on a true story off the author's note in the beginning of the book. It was an entertaining read. I enjoyed the illustrations and the story. The message wasn't heavy handed, but it wasn't too subtle that it won't be understood by the kids reading it either. I think children will enjoy this animal book.

On the same day, the people of Hazel Ridge Farm need to rescue a newborn lamb and a fawn. They quickly become "the twins" and are raised together until the day comes that the deer must be set free.
