Tenzin's Deer is a delightful book. This beautifully illustrated story of a young Tibetan boy's efforts to care for a wounded deer aptly reflect the compassionate and caring values pervading Tibetan culture. Barbara has also written Grandmother's Song (1998) for Barefoot Books. Danuta Mayer was born and still lives in London where she runs a small shelter for abused and abandoned animals from her home.

Barbara Soros draws on the ancient wisdom of the Tibetan people to narrate the touching story of a young boy named Tenzin and the wounded musk deer he encounters in the woods. By paying heed to his dreams and to the needs of the animal he has rescued.

Passionate about animal rights, Danuta has set up a refuge in her own home that currently houses seventeen dogs, three noisy parrots, and some two hundred smaller animals. Having tended numerous injured creatures and helped them on the road to recovery, Danuta easily identifies with the story of Tenzin’s Deer and understands the mixed sense of elation and loss felt when releasing a healed animal back into the wild.

by Barbara Soros & illustrated by Danuta Mayer. In this narrative based on a Tibetan tale, a young boy saves a wounded musk deer, compassionately nurses it, and ultimately faces the inevitable-letting it go. Soros’s understanding of the Tibetan culture and Buddhism and her knowledge of the landscape are conveyed with the clarity and respect a young reader will comprehend. The cultural references in text and illustration are accurate and vivid: juniper branches on charcoal fires, yak butter, prayers sounding like droning of bees, teapot, costume, and home.

When young Tenzin discovers a wounded musk deer high up in the hills, he takes it home to try and heal it. Through a dream, Tenzin learns how he can cure his new friend, and day by day, the deer gets better. But once the deer has recovered, Tenzin must learn the most important lesson of all: to love enough to let the deer go.

But soon he discovers that he must learn one of the most important lessons of all: how to love deeply enough to let go. The lush, intricate illustrations evoke the emotional depth of this tale that encourages the Buddhist virtues of nonviolence, compassion and the rejection of materialism.
Comments to eBook Tenzin's Deer

This wonderful story weaves together many spiritual, ethical and human truths. Unlike the above reviewer, as a practicing Jew, I have absolutely no problems with this book. It is a fabulous story of compassion and openning the heart and spirit to our world. I am a published children's author and am used to discussing books with small people. I had a wonderfully rewarding experience reading this with my 4 1/2 year old daughter. This book is terrific and shows how art can open the heart. The art work itself is also beautiful. I initially borrowed the book from the library and just had to have it. It's only happened once before.

I chose this book because it speaks to a prayerful sort of kindness for creatures and also helps in letting go of our attachments, whether human or animal. I sent a copy of this book to a friend who was having a struggle with letting go of her dying mother. She wept all the way through it and felt such release and gratitude. This book goes very deep in a profound way.

One of our daughters' favorites. A gentle, sweet, loving tale of kindness.

I ordered this book because there aren't that many books written about deer that don't involve hunting. This is a lovely book--nice story of compassion for other creatures and beautiful drawings also.

This book is a must for any parent who wants to promote kindness and caring in their children. The illustrations are lovely and every time we read it my children ask more questions about the world and reflect on their own experiences.

This book should be read by all medical folks- students and faculty. It eloquently presents a model for dealing with patients that enables the healer to come close to the patient.

I thought this might be a bit too old for my 5-year-old, and there are some parts he doesn't "get". But it is a wonderful story of a compassionate boy who cares for a deer, and my son gets that part. As a practicing Christian, I don't agree with everything the books says, but the caring and gentleness of this boy are traits I want my son to identify with. We both love the artwork. The book has been a wonderful opportunity to discuss other countries. I got it from the library originally, but I have bought it to keep.
Tenzin's Deer is an exceptional book for children. It is poetically written, with enriched language. This is a relief as illustrated books often tend towards overly simple language. It illustrates compassion and trust in inner gudance. It illustrates generosity of spirit and the ethics of love. It gives clues to a culture based on kindness and goodwill. How could a child not benefit from such a story. The illustrations are exceptional and match the text in beauty and meaning.
