Sheep on a Ship: 10/28/08

Sheep on a Ship is the second book in Nancy E. Shaw's sheep series. Both my children like pirates so this book is their favorite of the series.

In this book, the herd of sheep don pirate hats and take the high seas. They aren't any more competent with sailing as they are with driving and soon find themselves in trouble.

Sheep on a Ship isn't quite as tongue tying as as Sheep on a Jeep but it does have a few tricky moments involving words rhyming with ship. If you're going to read this book out loud to your children, I suggest practicing or read it very slowly the first couple of times to avoid unfortunate slips of the tongue.

The Sheep series includes:

  • Sheep in a Jeep (1986)
  • Sheep on a Ship (1989)
  • Sheep in a Shop (1991)
  • Sheep Out to Eat (1992)
  • Sheep Take a Hike (1994)
  • Sheep Trick or Treat (1987)
  • Sheep Blast Off (2008)

Looks like a great book. We have Duck in a Truck and I am thinking Santa will be bringing Sheep in a Jeep this year! "

We have Duck in a Truck too. It's on my very long list of books to review. Sheep in a Jeep is a fun book. All of them in the series are. Happy reading.
