Baa, Baa Black Sheep / Baa, Baa Pink Sheep by Mick Gowar
Publisher: Franklin Watts in the Ewe-K
Source: Personal Collection – Purchased New
Reason for Reading: SHEEP Content
The pink sheep has been harrassing me as of late to increase the sheep content on this blog. I am told that I am not reviewing enough books with sheep in the title or in the cover art to satisfy the minimum requirements for being a sheep blog and that I should feel…well, sheepish. And, I suppose I should. I know full well if I don’t take heed of the advice, I am going to be up sheep creek without a paddle and, let me tell ewe, if the sheep hits the fan, I’ll probably end up on the lamb with a new fleece on life.
If you are still reading…let me tell you about the book. This is a Tadpoles Nursery Rhymes book illustrated by O’Kif. I don’t know if that’s his first name or his last name, but that’s what he goes by. He has done a marvelous job illustrating the original rhyme as well as Mick Gowar’s twisted version about a naked sheep with nothing to offer.
At the end of each of the rhymes there are some simple activities for your little ones to do, asking them to pick out the rhyming words and to pick out the pictures that show items made with wool. Such an adorable little book that I knew I just had to have when I realized what it was about.
