Mom did what she could to comfort me, explaining on the way home that God had put some of the animals here on earth with a special purpose to help nourish us, just as many animals have to eat other animals for their nourishment. I don't recall venison ever being on our dinner menu at home so I probably wasn't too convinced at the time, but it's the same explanation I passed onto my grandson when I shared this book with him for the first time, and all of the characters I remember so well - Thumper the rabbit, Flower the skunk, gentle Faline - Bambi's female deer friend who later becomes his mate, and Ronno the stag, whom Bambi fights in order to win Faline.
Of course there's a happy ending, with Faline giving birth to twins, and Bambi now the new "Prince of the Forest". The American Film Institute ranked "Bambi" the #3 American animated film of all time, behind only Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio, so it's truly a classic - this Little Golden Book does a nice job of condensing a feature length film into 24 pages, as much as that's possible. I think it's so important, though, to allow our kids/grandkids to express their sadness instead of bottling it up inside - this is one of the first stories in which I learned about loss, and that it's okay to be sad. The book focuses more on the beauty and fun of life, the discoveries to be made, and how much good friends add to our joy!
