Overview

Woolbur by Leslie Helakoski, Lee Harper

Woolbur's list of Do's and Don'ts:

DO express yourself creatively…
DON'T worry if you weave your forelock into a pot holder!

DO march to your own beat…
DON'T worry when Maa and Paa tell you to stay with the herd!

DO be bold and brave…
DON'T be afraid to BE YOURSELF!

Woolbur is not like other sheep. He hangs out with wild dogs, cards his own wool to avoid the shearing barn, and even dyes his wool blue. "Don't worry!" says Grandpaa when Maa and Paa fret that Woolbur is different. But when they tell their son to follow the flock, the opposite happens—the flock follows him! Soon everyone is copying his wild hairstyles and taking turns on the spinning wheel. Leave it to Woolbur to find a new way to step ahead of the herd.

Spunky, funky, and refreshingly distinct, Woolbur will strike a chord with anyone who's ever felt different. And that's all of us!

This is a story that can be utilized for so many different topics in a children's classroom (or at home). It has a fun tone, lots of repetition (great for children to join the storytelling), and many important messages.

This is a wonderful book for anyone who wants to encourage a child to happily be who she/he was born to be. It is especially endearing to parents, grandparents & other loving relatives who enjoy fiber arts. I am buying many to give to new moms.
