Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
In this book, part of the "Farmyard Friends" series, the author explores the life cycle of a sheep and unearths interesting facts that will entertain young readers. It explains the basics: what a sheep is, what it looks like, where it lives, and what it eats. The reader learns, among other things, that ewes are friendly, and that many people keep sheep for their milk, which is used to make cheese. Common and unusual breeds of sheep, such as the Jacob sheep, are also featured. There is a short section addressing sheep shearing. Each topic is presented in a two-page spread containing color photographs that are explained with minimal text. The photographs are labeled, which is useful for younger readers. Throughout the book a cute cartoon character, a bluebird, presents "Farmyard Facts," sidebars with additional information. The book contains a glossary, an index, and a section entitled "Notes for Parents and Teachers" which provides ideas and suggestions for further learning and activities. While this is a good introductory book about sheep for young readers, it would have benefitted from more information describing sheep shearing and wool processing. It would also have been nice if an explanation of the term "black sheep" could have been included. Teachers and parents should note that there are similarities between this book and other books in the "Farmyard Friends" series: the style, the layout, the "Notes" section, and the cartoon bluebird are all identical. Thus, if readers enjoy or find useful one of the books in this series, they are likely to enjoy them all. Reviewer: Leona Illig
School Library Journal
Gr 2–3—Each book describes the creatures' physical appearance, life cycle, and how they are useful to people. High-quality color photos appear on every page, along with short factual information. The books conclude with a listing of activities for parents or teachers to expand on the topic. The simple texts and engaging pictures will appeal to beginning readers. The books could be used for reports but they will also appeal to children for general-interest reading.—Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
