    I just want to gush about this book Catherine Jameson, the author, is Shuswap Okanagan and the story includes Okanagan Syilx language in the book When a young girl and her father go out to look at the new foal on their land, they spy a spotted fawn under a tree Then they go off in search of its mother The patterned phrasing is reminiscent of Are You My Mother By P.D Eastman and will facilitate learning to read It was in on the shelf at my local library and had to pick...

    This was a sweet book that teaches readers the Syilx Okanagan names for different forest animals I really liked how the Syilx names were in red so they were easy to see throughout the story I did find however, that the story was a little bit lackluster Overall it was sweet, but some of the repetition felt forced T...

    Zoe and the Fawn is my first time reading a story from Catherine Jameson, and it is so cute It reminded me of Are You My Mother a little bit, in the line of questioning I thought the whole outing depicted was very sweet, and I loved the Okanagan translations for all of the animals in the book I wish there had been a pronu...

    Beautiful illustrations and simple text The text isn t quite something I would read aloud in a story time but I think for a grown up teaching a child the Okanagan language this would be really lovely There is no pronunciation of the Syilx words, so I think the intention is for it to be read by a bilingual adult to a child Children sometimes resist books written completel...

    Three OwnVoices creators made this book Animals Syilx Okanagan names are interspersed in the text with English translation I wish that a pronunciation guide had been included so readers could try it accurately for themselves.
