Overview

A nursery rhyme that toddlers can relate to

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep

and can't tell where to find them . . .

The Bo-Peep in question here is a wakeful youngster at play in her crib. And the sheep: two stuffed toys whom she lets fall over the rail. There is no hesitation on Bo-Peep's part to make known to the world her distressing situation, and soon her sleepy-eyed parents come to the rescue. Of course, when her parents leave the room again, there are no guarantees that the little girl is done playing shepherdess.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Pearson's soft-edge drawings, washed with gentle colors, will appeal to young children, who love to watch their peers in action." — Booklist

Children's Literature
In this series of board books, familiar nursery rhymes have been given a more up-to-date visual interpretation. For Little Bo-Peep, the young girl has a couple of stuffed sheep that she tosses out of her crib. Then she cries because she "can't tell where to find them." The parents who were obviously already asleep come to the baby's rescue and find the toys which they put back into the crib. Baby now seems content and ready for a good night's sleep, but the last page shows her once again tossing the sheep over the side of the crib. The scenes are ones that today's kids can relate to. The baby's room and all that it encompasses look familiar. I really think that this modern interpretation gives new life to a rhyme that no longer has any real meaning for contemporary kids. 2004, Farrar Straus Giroux, Ages 1 to 4.
