Sheep Take a Hike: 10/14/08
Nancy E. Shaw thought up the Sheep series of books during a long car trip. Sheep Take a Hike is the fifth in the series and a current favorite of Harriet.
Sheep Take a Hike follows the sheep as they head out for a day in the woods. As with all their adventures, big and small, good intentions go awry. They soon find themselves lost and bedraggled. Can they use their wits to find their way home?
The book is told in rhymes that border on tongue twisters. They have the same simplicity and humor of the "I Can Read" series of books by Dr. Seuss. It's tempting to read the books quickly but watch out; you might end up tongue tied!
The Sheep books are illustrated by Margot Apple. She brings the sheep to life. It was her illustrations for Sheep in a Jeep (1986) that first caught my attention back in 2003.
The Sheep series includes:
This looks like a great book! I will have to look out for this series!
