PreS-Gr 2- A mysterious extraterrestrial vehicle lands in the pasture, and the sheep are off on their seventh adventure. "Sheep snoop. Sheep explore./Sheep climb through the spaceship door." One green alien, who bears a marked resemblance to the sheep, has remained onboard and watches as they suit up and blast off. With Earth in the distance, two sheep float outside and check for damage. Later, when they tinker with the main controls, "Sheep panic. Sheep guess./Which button should they press?" Thankfully, the alien stuns them and brings the ship safely back to Earth. Other aliens, aware of the situation, help carry them off the spaceship and leave them sleeping peacefully under pink blankets. The sheep awaken as the spaceship blasts off once more. Apple's softly shaded, colored-pencil drawings capture the expressive faces of the five sheep, and Shaw's crisp rhyming text chronicles their misadventures with economy and good humor. Beginning readers can sound out the short, simple sentences as they look for the hidden alien and wonder when he will intervene. Sheep in a Jeep (Houghton, 1986) won the hearts of children more than 20 years ago, and this adventure will win new fans for the series.-Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN

I bought this because my kids love "Sheep in a Jeep." This one isn't formatted to work well on the NookColor. The pictures and the text don't always match up,making the reading experience disjointed and frustrating. I let my kids read on my Nook, and this book would not be enjoyable for them. It may be fine as a paper book, but I wouldn't recommend it for an ereader.

This book, and the others in the series, are perfect for kindergarten kids who are reading -- also fun to read to younger children who don't yet read. They are clever, cheerful, and funny. My grandson loves them!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

My kids love the books by Nancy Shaw so I was eager to download this onto my Nook Color for them to enjoy becasue we could never find it in print. But it isn't formatted right and it makes reading it difficult. Hope the problem can be fixed because I would love to have this book in their Nook collection to read over and over again!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
