booktober - where is the green sheep?

Where is the Green Sheep?, funnily enough, is a simple tale of the search for the green sheep. Although the structure of the narrative is repetitive the text itself celebrates difference.
It is a fun read for the toddler, who undoubtedly will ask for it to be read over and over and over again. We have the board book version - which is a good thing because it is certainly very well read and enjoyed at our place.
The illustrations are bright, colourful and filled with light hearted humour. A big thumbs up from me.

  2. How cool is this book Sally.. and not just for kids. And have you heard about how the amazing Mem fox wrote it with almost all one syllable words? I think there are only 2 words that have more than one syllable.

    Have you read Boo to a Goose?
