Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! One of my favorite books to read my toddler. It doesn't get old. It's just a fun book. And no, I don't know why the sheep holding flowers has a welder's mask-like paper bag on its head. I've been meaning to write to the illustrator to find out. It's so weird! But still, a great, light book and the board makes it have longevity in this house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful little book! This is my 3 year old grand daughter's go to nap time book. Now she reads it to me - and we have many discussions on just where that silly green sheep is - and why does one sheep have a paper bag over its head??? Poppa says it's just shy....

Editorial Reviews

PreS. "Here's the blue sheep. / And here is the red sheep. / Here is the bath sheep. / And here is the bed sheep. / But where is the green sheep?" Little ones will bounce with anticipation as the simple yet clever text takes them to visit one sheep and then another. The green sheep, however, is nowhere to be seen until the final spread, where he is found under a very green bush, fast asleep. Until the lost sheep turns up, children will have fun with the other sheep that make an appearance and perhaps, unbeknownst to them, also get lessons in colors and comparisons (the near sheep, the far sheep). In this neat and satisfying wedding of text and art, the squat, square format uses wool-white backgrounds to display much of the amusing pen-and-watercolor pictures. As for the sheep themselves, Horacek has concocted simply lined happy animals, whose wool is indicated by dozens of curlicues. Laughs and interactive play will ensue among readers and listeners, alone or in groups.
