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.
From the Publisher

"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." School Library Journal
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 Publisher
"The repetition and rhyme in brief humorous text admirably suits the board book format." Publishers Weekly

    Similar to Dr. Suess Books

    The characters are zany, the rhymes are enchanting. Written in the same vein as the Dr. Suess easy-readers, this book, Sheep In A Jeep, would be a great addition to your home librsry. My sons really enjoy it.

    Just Darling

    I had not been exposed to the other books in the series, but I definitely believe Sheep In A Jeep is just darling and the rhymes make it so much fun. My son can just now read this on his own, an better yet, he wants to!!

    Another grandson favorite

    The rhyming very entertaining and the illustrations vivid. It's not too long, not too short and we read it over and over. Will purchase others from this author and illustrator.

    Cute but not a classic

    I bought this book after reading the online reviews. As cute as this book is, it is not on the same level as the classics.

    Highly Recommended

    This is a delightful book. It is great fun to read aloud and children can learn a lesson or two from this brief adventure. The illustrations are amusing and well-drawn. I not only recommend this book but I give it often to the younger members of my family.

    What a ride!

    I purchased Sheep in a Jeep for my grand daughter for Christmas but as soon as it arrived I wanted to read it. These sheep are a mess! I laughed and laughed as their ride continued-or not. I showed my daughter who had the same reaction....be careful as you read this out loud because you will have serious difficultly getting to the end without laughing and crying at the same time! A great addition to any story time.

    Fun book

    We've been working with our 4 year old on rhyming words & this book is great for that! Very few words to the story but they all rhyme. Very cute illustrations and funny story. This is not a "read to me" book.

    Perfect for toddler or new reader

    This book is very good to read to a toddler since it has the rhyme and cute story. It is equally good for a new reader!

    Sheep Shrug...Sheep Tug!!!

    We LOVE this book. It's such a cute story with great illustrations. We hope everyone buys this book and read it again and again. We have two of them... one for home and one for the cabin. I can't wait to get the other sheep books. Raccoon Tune looks fun too!

    This is a great book because my young son can read it without any problems and he's just learning to read on his own.

    Family Favorite!!!!

    I was first introduced to Sheep in a Jeep as a preschool teacher. Catchy and clever, it was a hit with my students. Now as a mother of two, I made sure that it was a part of our home library. Not only can my girls recite the whole story, but so can their grandparents and aunts and uncles!!

    What a surprise!

    I happened upon 'Sheep in a Jeep' last year while looking for books for my 22 month old niece. This book is tounge twisting fun. The artwork only adds to it. I notice something new each time we read it. (Look for the pig's tattoo!) It's still a favorite. I plan on buying more of the titles this year.
