One spring, as part of their animal rescue work on Hazel Ridge Farm, Gijsbert (Nick) and Robbyn van Frankenhuyzen find themselves caring for a lamb and an orphaned fawn at the same time. They name the lamb Teeny Weeny and the fawn Itsy Bitsy. Raised as "siblings," the two youngsters are inseparable that summer, sharing a playpen in the house, romping together, and just getting into general mischief. As the seasons change, Itsy Bitsy and Teeny Weeny grow into their true selves, away from "Mother" Robbyn and each other. Nature must take its course and the two animals go their separate ways: one back to a life in the wild and the other on to domestic farm life. Warmly illustrated by wildlife artist Gijsbert van Frankhuyzen, this bittersweet story is another gentle lesson in how nature works on Hazel Ridge Farm.Illustrator Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen and wife Robbyn team up again for their fourth wildlife tale drawn from their years of work as licensed wildlife rehabilitators.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—In this fourth adventure at Hazel Ridge Farm, Teeny Weeny, a lamb rejected by its mother and Itsy Bitsy, an orphaned fawn, are raised as brother and sister at an actual animal-rehabilitation center. At first barely strong enough to eat, the newly adopted animals grow robust enough after weeks of bottle feeding to escape their playpen and move to the barn. Ultimately, the young buck's inherent nature takes over as he leaps over fences to explore the wild around him, leaving his more security-minded companion behind. When his leg gets caught in the fence as he tries to escape yet again, his human caregiver realizes that it is time to let him live with other deer in the woods. The caregiver's first-person narrative tells a quality story while seamlessly introducing facts about taking care of animals. Full-spread paintings capture life on the farm and the endearing friendship between these two otherwise unlikely siblings. This is a great introduction to what it is like to look after wild animals in need and why it is so important to let them go.—Kristine M. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY END
