Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Basic beginning vocabulary is repeated in this easy-to-read rhyme about different kinds of sheep. Children will quickly catch on to the repetitive phrase, "But where is the green sheep?" until they reach the conclusion, where the green sheep is found asleep. Font size is "schoolbook" large and black. White space is prevalent, giving a clear, crisp look to the pages. Horacek's simple, ink-and-watercolor illustrations feature the frolicking sheep basking in the sun, skiing down a slide, playing in a band, etc.; their facial features show their antics as they sing joyously in the rain or shake at the base of the swimming pool's high dive. A welcome addition to the year's flock of easy-readers.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

From Booklist

PreS. "Here's the blue sheep. / And here is the red sheep. / Here is the bath sheep. / And here is the bed sheep. / But where is the green sheep?" Little ones will bounce with anticipation as the simple yet clever text takes them to visit one sheep and then another. The green sheep, however, is nowhere to be seen until the final spread, where he is found under a very green bush, fast asleep. Until the lost sheep turns up, children will have fun with the other sheep that make an appearance and perhaps, unbeknownst to them, also get lessons in colors and comparisons (the near sheep, the far sheep). In this neat and satisfying wedding of text and art, the squat, square format uses wool-white backgrounds to display much of the amusing pen-and-watercolor pictures. As for the sheep themselves, Horacek has concocted simply lined happy animals, whose wool is indicated by dozens of curlicues. Laughs and interactive play will ensue among readers and listeners, alone or in groups. Ilene Cooper

Love this book!! It's one of my favorite books to read my toddler. Very cute and lots and lots to look at. She giggles endlessly when you finally find the green sheep. We can spend a lot of time looking at this book and learning what each of the sheep are doing

I picked this up and have to say it is a beautiful piece. My 6 year old daughter picked it up and sat down and read it to me in awe at the brightly colored pictures and very excited to find out where the green sheep was! She enjoyed the opposites and the simple words that were easy for her to sound out and pick up on. It is now her favorite book!
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!

The best way to rate a kids book is too see if kids like it. This one gets top marks from our kids. The story is a wonderful way to introduce young children ages 2-5 to colours, words and emotions. And best of all, it ends with the concept of sleeping - perfect for a bedtime story. This book was given to our children and we bought it for another child because we didn't want to part with our copy. Love it. Good price.

Very simple book, yet my 2 year old daughter just loves it. After reading it twice she now likes to help read it (when I read "This is the..." she aswers red sheep, bath sheep, near sheep, far sheep etc...
I think she likes it because she can help finish the sentences by looking at the pictures. She pulls this book out to look at herself when I am too busy to read. Cute!

The kids at storytime really like this book. It is always fun, because they are so proud that they know where the Green Sheep is after the first read. They respond in unison everytime the text reads, "but where is the green sheep?" The illustrations are so cute you'll want to keep looking for the green sheep too!

My one-year old daughter loves this book and will pick it out every night as her bedtime story. She quickly learned to say "shhh" at the end of the story. My husband found it at the local library, but we went out and bought a copy for her (and one for all our baby friends).

Easy to read to the point where we'll likely get a French copy as well. It's a great little story with curiosity done well. I say that because even after finishing the story & finding the green sheep... they still want to go back and read it again to find the green sheep again.

The summary on the back page of Where Is the Green Sheep? reads: "The story of many different sheep, and one who appears to be missing." I couldn't have said it better myself! As well as teaching about opposites, this book has humour, mystery and sweet, whimsical illustrations.
