Mother, son, and pet dog awake one February morning to find their house, yard, and the surrounding woods draped with thick fog. They decide to take an early morning walk in the woods, hoping to spy deer. Everything is covered in dew and is mystical looking. The watercolor illustrations are wonderful and unique. Along the way, they see many kinds of wildlife, but no deer. They are having fun despite not actually seeing any deer. After returning home for breakfast, two deer are seen peering into their house watching them! The tone of the book is relaxing and calm. It is clear the mother and son love spending time together. Nature is seen as beautiful and to be respected. It is hard to describe, but this book is just different than any I have ever read. Something else I like about this book is that it celebrates the simple things in life; showing that a simple walk through the woods can be a fun adventure for mother and son to do together. Anyone who respects nature or appreciates the simple pleasures in life will love reading this book to their child.
