Terrible job of scanning this book in. A waste.

This book is not ment to be read on the NookColor, the pictures and text are scetchy, weird and don't line up. It litterally looks as though they scanned/copy & pasted the images from the book, horrible. Loved Sheep in a Jeep, this one however is a bummer.

Awesome rhyme scheme, sheep go for a walk, they get lost, then found by falling their wool snagged on branches. Very fun!

I love the sheep series. In this one, the facial expressions on the animals really shine, especially the non-sheep characters. Margot Apple puts all sorts of little details into her illustrations and it seems I discover something new each time I read the book.The rhymes are a delight. If you read this book out loud, don't read too fast. The rhythm requires pauses in the proper places. If you read it slowly, with expression, you'll find that the rhythm is more comfortable. Toddlers love these books and love the rhymes so you'll get lots of practice.Worth owning. This series is one of my all time favorites.
