Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Using very few words (sheep, jeep, thud, mud, heap, cheap), a tableau unfolds in which five silly yet distinctive sheep futilely attempt to ride in their jeep. Amusing details-such as the tattoos on the pigs' arms-abound in the pictures. Apple's expressive illustrations and Shaw's minimal text make this an extremely clever read-aloud.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep/on a hill that's/steep./Uh-oh!/The jeep won't go,'' is a fragment of Shaw's jaunty verse, heartily dramatized by Apple's colored drawings. Ages 2-5. (Oct.)
From The Critics
"The bright-colored pencil drawings and lean text make this a great choice for preschool storytimes, as well as for beginning readers who want a funny story."

    laughing sheep

    This a great book for little people to read and reread and to study. The expressions on sheep faces are priceless. Have you ever seen a sheep sweat? The predicaments that the sheep encounter make the little ones think. This edition of the book itself lends itself to young children. The heavy cardboard pages make for easy turning and great visualization. 10 stars!

    My grandson loved it

    My grandson loves this book. He's only 23 months old and in love with cars. He specifically loves jeeps because his dad owns one. He points them out on the street, and asks to go in the garage to see his dad's jeep. So when I saw this book, I knew it would be a hit. It is age appropriate and beautifully illustrated. Now, he asks his mom and dad to read it to him every night for his bed time story. It's a great book for him to learn to read later on. His 9-month-old brother is beginning to like it as well.
