Where Is the Green Sheep?

To those of you who know me, I don’t know where B ever got the idea to hide from someone *cough*, but…

When Kyle gets home from work, she’ll shout, “Daddy home!” run to the window & wave, jump up and down, then urgently whisper…

HIDE.

So, then we hide. It might be in a closet, the laundry room, eyes covered, sitting obviously in the chair, or once (my favorite of her choices)– in the middle of the living room in her new (not fully assembled) wagon covered by a quilt.

That Daddy of hers, he’s a good sport. 🙂 “Where could she possibly be?”

Where Is the Green Sheep? caught my eye at the library. I knew our happy hider B would be curious and willing to find someone who is missing– especially since we’ve been on many, many missions to find her beloved Duck.

In this book, your little one will meet all kinds of sheep– scared sheep, brave sheep, sun sheep, and rain sheep. There are sheep playing with sand, sheep doing acrobatics, and even snorkeling sheep (think of all of that wet wool…) and still, your little one hasn’t yet seen the (*hint*) sleepy, green sheep!

Your little one will be entertained and so busy meeting the whimsical sheep through rhyme, that you’ll get a few reminders.

“Where is the green sheep?”

Oh yeah, where is that green sheep?

This engaging picture book (AND board book!) is geared towards ages 0-5.

Have you shopped for board books? Have you been to the children’s section of a bookstore and spent time looking around?

Yes. Yes.

Have you seen Sandra Boynton’s books before?

Yes. Right?

If you answered no (and even if you said yes,) it’s high time you find out about B’s favorite Boynton book.ohmyohmyIn this clever board book full of rhyming opposites, little ones will discover the difference between things like happy & sad, morning & night, and cute & *not so* cute dinosaurs. The illustrations are perfect to help describe the adjective– especially the strong dinosaur that has ripped a tree (and the scared, shaking small dinosaur in the tree) right out of the ground.

And for you– well, you get to experience a questioning look from your tot when you suddenly realize you need to sight read music and sing!

“Dinosaurs singing a dinosaur song!”

Practice makes perfect…
