Hooray for Sheep Farming! (Hooray for Farming! Series) Library Binding – November 1, 1997
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3?These titles from Canada succeed with mixed results. Dairy Farming does not mention that there are many breeds of dairy cows, but discusses the history of pasteurization. It has too many broad general statements that lead to wrong conclusions. Two photos and a drawing show unsanitary conditions in the milking parlor. Cynthia McFarland's Cows in the Parlor (Atheneum, 1990; o.p.) is a better choice. Sheep Farming is more successful. Health concerns and nutrition are briefly addressed. Different types of wool are mentioned, as are the different kinds of sheep dogs and guard animals that sheep farmers use. The series title derives its name from the third paragraph of text that instructs readers to shout, "Hooray for..." the next time they encounter a product made from wool or milk. This may be intended to enliven the text but it comes across as silly. The format is attractive with large print; colorful, clear photographs; and appropriate illustrations. Unfamiliar terms are printed in boldface and defined in both the text and a glossary. Sheep Farming is an adequate purchase if needed; pass on Dairy Farming.?Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS

Author Bobbie Kalman describes aspects of commercial agriculture with enough text to bring clarity to the subject without overwhelming a young reader. This is a valuable series. . . -- Library Talk, Sept./Oct. 1998
With photos and clear illustrations we get the information we need about the operation of such farms. The text gives the child researcher a clear look at the workings of a farm, today and in the past -- Sally Bender, Brandon Sun, Dec. 1997
