Sheep in a Jeepby Nancy Shaw
Synopses & Reviews
Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep on a hill thats steep.
Sheep in a Jeep is well loved by the preschool and early-reader sets for its slapstick story of five sheep (in a jeep) and silly sound effects—especially when the jeep goes splash and thud in the mud! Nancy Shaws rollicking rhymes are Seuss-snappy, and Margot Apples appealing pencil illustrations are expressive and hilarious. This 2010 board book edition, just right for small hands, includes a “Make Your Own Sheep” activity! (Think cotton balls.) Shear delight.
Dont miss Shaw and Apples other sheep-heaped titles in board book form: Sheep in a Shop, Sheep on a Ship, Sheep Out to Eat, Sheep Trick or Treat, and the lap-size board book edition of Sheep in a Jeep!
What could be better than a misadventure in board book format from that rambunctious flock of sheep? In "Sheep in a Jeep", the hapless flock goes for a drive in the country. Full color.
What could be better than a misadventure from that rambunctious flock of sheep in board-book form? Two! Now sized perfectly for even the smallest hands, two of Nancy Shaw and Margot Apple's enchanting titles from their sheep series are board books. In Sheep in a Jeep, the hapless flock goes for a drive in the country. In Sheep in a Shop, the sheep are off to the store in search of the perfect birthday gift. With these muttonheads, a normal outing is sure to turn into a joyous lark. Rhyming text and disarming illustrations make these shear delights!
What will happen when the sheep go trick-or-treating? Could there be wolves lurking in the woods, hoping to catch the sheep as they head home? This lively, funny story is a real treat for fans of this adventuresome flock.
That fun flock is raring for a rugged hiking adventure. Rapid rhythm, rhyme, and colorful illustrations make this a perfect introduction to poetry.
