Most Helpful Customer Reviews
John and Jennifer, wonderful photographers, writers and farmers, have brought to life the animals on their small farm in Vermont. We know animals have personalities, but after following posts on Facebook, we feel like we know these sheep, dogs, pony and even the turkeys, ducks and chickens! The SheepOver is a warm and caring story about an injured sheep (Sweet Pea, of course) who is lovingly brought back to good health by her farmers, with the help of her animal friends. Any child will love this book, and so will adults! Everything about it merges so beautifully - the pictures, the story and the beautiful backgrounds. These sheep, and the farmers, are very, very special. It's a wonderful gift, and plan to keep a copy for yourself, as well!
