Praise

This quiet picture book records a child’s experience of nature with precision, beauty, and understated power.
—Booklist (starred review)

David Slocum has illustrated this quiet father-and-son nature ramble with paintings that are rich yet subtle; he works here with a subdued palette of greens and grays and mustardy yellows, layering thickly with fat brushstrokes. The effect is as enchanting as the sudden glimpse of a doe and two fauns.
—The Wall Street Journal

There’s much to love here: Lowery Collins’ poetic cadence and careful language; Slonim’s impressionistic paintings of the hikers and all they see as they search for deer.
—The Sunday Plain Dealer
