This story is from a book called Woodland Folk Tales from Britain and Ireland.
There are few sightings of the White Deer, some say the deer is from the realm of the Fairies and Elves and if you are to see it then great hope will fill your heart.
This is a great little story for our time with many similarities to the world we have found ourselves in during 2020 and 2021. You may not see a white deer to fill your heart with hope but with many signs of spring appearing all around us there is optimism in the air that bright times are returning.
After listening to the story consider the following questions:
1) Have you seen any signs of spring yet? Print off our signs of spring search and head out to seek and search.
2) If you saw a white deer and followed it where do you think it would lead? Can you make up your own story?
3) When we are hopeful our problems never seem as a big as we imagine- make a list of all the things we have to be hopeful for as we enter spring.
