A flock of five hapless sheep drives through the country in this hilarious rhyming picture book. Expressive illustrations and few words makes this an excellent read-aloud book - great for both reading to your children and for when your children begin to read to you! For ages 2 to 5.
Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep on a hill that’s steep.
Sheep in a Jeep is well-loved by the preschool and early-reader sets for its slapstick story of five sheep (in a jeep) and silly sound effects—especially when the jeep goes splash and thud in the mud! Nancy Shaw’s rollicking rhymes are Seuss-snappy, and Margot Apple’s appealing pencil illustrations are expressive and hilarious. Shear delight.
Don’t miss Shaw and Apple’s other sheep-heaped titles: Sheep in a Shop, Sheep on a Ship, Sheep Out to Eat, Sheep Trick or Treat, Sheep Blast Off, and Sheep Take a Hike.
Nancy Shaw is the author of seven beloved tales featuring the endearing and comical sheep. She came up with the idea for the sheep books during a very long car trip with her husband and two children. She lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan with her family. For more information, visit http://www.nancyshawbooks.com/.
Margot Apple is a freelance illustrator, having illustrated more than fifty books for children while also producing illustrations for "Cricket" and "Ladybug" magazines. She now lives in Shelburn Falls, Massachusetts, with her husband and their pets, a dog and a cat.
``Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep/on a hill that's/steep./Uh-oh!/The jeep won't
go,'' is a fragment of Shaw's jaunty verse, heartily dramatized by Apple's
colored drawings. Ages 2-5. (Oct.)
"The bright-colored pencil drawings and lean text make this a great choice for preschool storytimes, as well as for beginning readers who want a funny story." School Library Journal
