"Here's the blue sheep. / And here is the red sheep. / Here is the bath sheep. / And here is the bed sheep. / But where is the green sheep?" This sturdy board book full of cuddly sheep will have every child curious with anticipation - "But where is the green sheep?" Throughout the book we see all kind of sheep that described in a fun way, or doing some kind of activity - bath sheep, bed sheep, up sheep, down sheep, far sheep, near sheep, car sheep, train sheep, etc. But the green sheep is missing and nowhere to be found... until the last page of course! Simple words, repetition, fun rhyme, and great illustrations make this book a must-have for any children's library!

This is a cute book with fun rhymes about finding the green sheep. You learn different colors, about distances, weather, activities all to find the one single green sheep. & in the end, he's not really doing much...

Where is that green sheep? This is a wonderful book for babies, toddlers or pre-schoolers (and of course their parents). My girls have loved making up actions for each of the sheep, and naming all of the sheep on the second last page (their favourite has to be "Birthday Cake Sheep"). The simple, yet fun, illustrations mean even little bubs will love this one.

This book would be good for younger children. It can lead to a class discussion about where they think the green sheep is. They find out at the end of the story. This is a short book, but I thought that it was very cute and fun.

This book is filed with all sorts of sheep from blue sheep to clown sheep to brave sheep, but the green sheep is just nowhere to be found! This colorful picture books introduces concepts and opposites with rhyming text and whimsical ink and watercolor drawings. The large, clear font, as well as predictable sentences supported by illustrations help usher young children into reading. I would recommend this book for a public or school library collection that serves preschoolers and kindergartners.

Where is the Green Sheep is a picture book about colors, activities and knowledge. The book shows sheep doing different activities such as playing in a band, swinging, and reading in bed... but where is the green sheep

Sheep are everywhere in this rhyming book, but we can't find the green sheep until the end. She's blending into the bush under which she sleeps.

My three-year old absolutely loves this book. It was a hit from the first reading. She can "read" it from cover to cover, and she asks me to read it wrong so that she can read it right. The pictures are wonderful, and the suspense is perfectly atuned to toddlers. Finding the green sheep is great fun for us both every time we read this clever and adorable book.

Basic beginning reading throughout this book. It incoporates an easy to read rhyme about sheep. Colors and comparrisons are a main focus in this story. Very delightful and entertaining.

Color, space, emotion and play, young readers will look for the green sheep where ever he is hiding.

We (the pre-schoolers and I) really likes this book. They were hooked on finding out where the green sheep was. Great classroom addition.

this is a book for early childhood ages. it can be used to teach a lesson about colors and where the different sheep are. throughout the book the reader is looking for the green sheep but learning about the other types in the process. this is cute book to read to little children that cn help woth colors and descriptive verbs.

A fun book that explores all the different colors a sheep can be and all the different things a sheep can do. Very basic book to learn colors and shapes.

My 19 month old LOVES this book! When she starts saying "sheep sheep," I know that she wants to go and read it. We read it so much, I almost have the book memorized! I think this is a must-have for any kid's bookshelf :)

My 2 year old daughter loves this book. We first borrowed it from the library. She'd bring it to me to read everyday. I had to purchase it because we had to return the borrowed one and she kept asking for 'reen cheep'.
