Sheep Care

Modeled after mainstream author Sandra Boynton's famous board books, Anne Catharine Blake's Sheep Care is a super-simple book for babies and toddlers. Each page shows sheep in pastel hues, engaged in an activity. "One in a big chair. Two make room to share. Three hold hands to cross the street. Four share a gooey treat." And so on, until we're back to "One with God is never alone."

What I Like: I appreciate that these sheep model great behavior, from sharing, to visiting a sick friend, to taking turns. The simple ending - which is the only mention of God - is to the point and exactly the sort of thing very young children like.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Very Good.

Age Appeal: Baby to preschool.

Publishing Info: Concordia, 1998; ISBN: 978-0570050902; board book, $5.49
