Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This primary-age-focused picture book tells the story of a newly born lamb and his shyness around others. Out in the meadow with his mother, the lamb meets a number of potential meadow friends—a bunny, a cricket, a robin, and an owl—but is too scared to engage with any of them in playing, singing, or exploring the world of the meadow. Then the lamb meets a little mouse who is every bit as shy as he is; recognizing like spirits, the two become friends and find out how enjoyable playing with someone else is. . . as long as you do not have to leave the shadow of your mothers. The illustrations are rendered in acrylic paint and colored pencils, giving the pictures a soft, gentle feel that corresponds effectively with the tone of the book. This would be an easy book for a young reader as there is a great deal of repetition of words and sound clusters throughout the book. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
PreS–Although a rabbit, a cricket, a robin, and an owl all encourage a shy baby lamb to interact and explore, he continues to hide behind his mother. At last, a tiny field mouse asks him to play and, surprisingly, he says yes. As they frolic in the grass, the lamb takes his first steps into the world. The soft acrylic and colored-pencil illustrations seem to pop off the page with many shades of spring green, blue, and lavender. Including large images of the animals, the pictures work with the brief text to create a great sense of immediacy. This gentle, reassuring tale tells youngsters that they can explore their world at their own speed. The eye-catching spreads and simple language make this book a natural for toddler storytime.–Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
Kirkus Reviews
Oozing verbal and visual glucose on every page, this parent-child episode will draw timorous toddlers like flies to marshmallow creme-just make sure they brush their teeth afterward. "All brand-new," a shy lamb rejects in turn the friendly overtures of a "flouncy pouncy rabbit," a "cheery crickety cricket," a "jolly robin redbreast" and a "swooping old hoot owl." Keeping his illustrations as simple as the text, Butler supplies for all shiny black eyes and, for the sheep, plushy fleeces, and places the creatures in a sunny meadow in which poppies float like little red hearts. A "bitty little mouse peeking round her bitty mama!" finally breaks down the lamb's fear of strangers, and together the two new friends gambol-still "right beside their mamas!" "What fun!" Thompson concludes. Yes, let the wild rumpus start. (Picture book. 3-5)
