We count backwards and find the hidden numbers somewhere on the page as the sheep sing silly songs, hang out clothes, walk through a maze, try to fly a kite, and other imaginative, crazy and fun things.
This sheep tale is hilarious with its creative and intricate illustrations that speak volumes and add life and movement to the whole sing-along. The expressions on the sheep’s faces are unforgettable and even without the text (which is a comedy in itself) the pictures tell the story convincingly. This is the true test of text translation.
I love this book. It too, will take up permanent residence on my kid’s book shelf.
