A classic to read to your toddler over and over again.


An excellent first book for toddlers. Engaging illustrations with simple rhyming text. And of course finishes with a sleeping central character.



I love Mem Fox as an Author.


I don't need to write anything else other than Mem Fox is a Great Children's Author.

A must have classic for a child's first library


I got this along with a number of other baby board books. A must have for their first collection.





I love this book. I bought it for my nephew for Christmas.



A fun story to read to your kids again and again😀


A good book to help kids learn to read. The book repeats itself. Fun to read with vibrant colours



a teaching book in disguise


this was suggested to me by a lady my hubby works with, it was much better than i expected and will be a good teaching book of opposites later in life. i really like how there isn't a fat sheep but a wide sheep instead instead which i think is much better. book has a great cadence, i see this will become a favorite book





Children love it!!!

Here is 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?

Mem Fox and Judy Horacek take you on a wildly wonderful adventure in their rollicking search for the green sheep.

Mem has never owned a sheep, let alone a green one, but she does admit to having woolly thoughts from time to time.

Judy loves drawing things, especially sheep. This is her first flock.
