Sheep Out to Eatby Margot Apple, Nancy E. Shaw
The sheep are back, and this time they're hungry, venturing into a tea shop for even more rollicking fun and, of course, disasters. "The very simple sentences, the rhymed text, and the humorous tone are perfect for beginning readers." -- School Library Journal, starred review

I purchased this for my grand daughter for Christmas, but when it arrived, I had to read it....I laughed out loud several times. Then, when my daughter came over, I couldn't wait to show her. As she read it out loud to her 8 month old, she couldn't stop laughing--we were both in tears and the baby was laughing at us! Can't wait till Christmas.
Author has a wonderful way with words-love all her "Sheep" books.Great for 2 years and up.Highly recommend for parents. auntier
My 7 year old daughter has checked this book out twice already, she loves the silly story and illustrations. The words are just challenging enough for a child beginning to read independently. Younger children will enjoy the rhymes and humor as well.
This book reminds me of nothing so much as taking my family out to eat. It's a disaster! Only when it's the sheep, I can laugh! My daughter likes to sit in my lap as I read it, and we sneeze when the sheep sneeze, and 'jump and bump our knees.' I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the sheep books.
