OUR LITTLE DEAR is absolutely darling! Not only are the illustrations attractive to a very young child, the book has soft antlers sticking out the top. It is just too cute! The story is full of warmth and love for a little deer/dear.
“You fill our home with so much love.
You’re an angel sent from up above.
We love, love, love you, little deer.”
I would definitely recommend this for children 2 years old and under.
