The Yearling

by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Jody's loneliness is assuaged by his pet fawn, but trouble and sorrow ensue when he can no longer control the mischievous deer.

Barbara's Notes: This Pulitzer Prize winning novel is a poignant study of relationships and coming of age. It is so much more than a story about a boy and his pet; take it slow and grow with Jody. (Grades 8, 9, 10)
