Using remarkably simple words, the book follows various sheep through their day. We see sheep of many colors and sheep taking baths. We have sheep up and we have sheep down. There are band sheep, wind sheep, near and far sheep. Just about any kind of sheep you can think of, this book's got `em. Still, one question keeps popping up throughout the pages. Where is the green sheep? By the end, we discover the mysterious green sheep's location and exactly what it is doing. It's an oddly satisfying way to end the tale and so we do.
Mem Fox incites an odd following of rabid pro-Fox fans everywhere. People cannot get enough of this woman. I've never completely fallen under the Fox spell myself, but with this book I'm beginning to see her charms. Though the story would be far less interesting if it was not accompanied by Judy Horacek's illustrations (more on that later), it's still a bouncy flouncy flurry of fun. In fact after all the crazy sheep antics there are two blank pages containing these words at the story's close.Read more ›
prepares young listeners to further enjoy stories about sheep.
Follow with Nancy Shaw's Sheep in a Jeep !!!
This book does a nice job of blending fact and fantasy. Sheep are drawn in pastoral settings, happily eating daisies, grass and clovers as well as being anthropormorphized and engaged in human activites such as fixing a car; sleeping in a bed; taking baths and dancing.
Young children will find that this book will keep their attention. The language is clear and direct without overdoing; the point is made right off the bat. Cognitive concepts such as color, up, down, in and out are included. One can also interpret the sheep of many colors, blue, red, etc. as being a metaphor for diversity and acceptance. The Quest for the Green Sheep makes for very humorous reading indeed.
The writing, together with the excellent illustrations make for a very nice package indeed. Regardless of level of degree in matters ovine, readers and listeners alike will enjoy the pure fun of this book. People of all ages will laugh at the ovine antics and get a charge out of finding out the whereabouts of that green sheep!
It is a very good book for small children and it goes quickly and can definitely spark some learning experience with all of the opposites. Very nice bedtime story!
I am a very avid reader myself and it thrills me when my children show such an interest in it as well.
Where is the Green Sheep? is my 2 year olds favorite book. She will pick it out before any other!
