A gentle boy encounters a lonely fawn while he’s traipsing through the woods he loves. He “whispers into soft velvet, ‘I’ll carry you home.’” His mother cautions him that he’ll have free Alba, once she’s strong enough to go. Until then, though: Alba is his delightful new companion, and the bond they form is strong. Soft, attentive illustrations contribute to the soothing atmosphere of this lovely story about caring for the world around us, which cares for us in return.
