PreS Beside a sparkling clear brook children watch as some deera buck, and then a doe and her two fawnscome to drink and eat. The fawns observe the fish in the water, play, then nap on the bank. Arnosky has created a simple volume for the very youngest nature lovers. The book's real lesson comes not from the sparse, descriptive text, but from the illustrations. Hoof prints on the inside cover and title page prepare children for the deer's appearance; close-ups of the deer provide an awesome treat. A singing thrush, soaring swallows, jeweled butterfly, leaping fish, spindly damselflies, nest-building sparrowall appear in Arnosky's very realistic two-page softly colored pencil drawings. It's a nature lesson that's likely to be treasured by tots and parents, too. Susan Scheps, Bertram Woods Library, Shaker Heights, Ohio
