Little Fawn is excited to go out and play without his parents around, as he is a big boy now. But when he does, Little Fox teases him and calls him names. Little Fawn doesn’t want to tell his parents, believing if he did, they would laugh at him and think he is too young to play outside. However, as time goes by, Little Fox doesn’t relent, and Daddy Deer can tell something is wrong with his son. Finally, after some encouragement, Little Fawn tells Daddy Deer that Little Fox is bullying him, and Daddy Deer helps Little Fawn come up with a solution by understanding why Little Fox is acting this way.
The Brave Fawn helps children learn how to deal with bullying and reiterates the golden rule—treat others as you want to be treated. Children who are or have been bullied will learn the importance of talking to someone they trust and asking for help.
The Brave Fawn highlights themes of bullying, self-confidence, bravery, empathy, and self-reliance for children ages 4 to 8.
