Baa Baa Smart Sheep by Mark Sommerset- NO

Sommerset, Mark. Baa Baa Smart Sheep, PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2010. This book essentially consists of a sheep trying to get a turkey to eat his poo. The turkey is finally convinced that the poo is actually a pile of tablets that will make him smarter and so he eats it. I did not like this book. What a stupid premise for a children’s book. There are already so many books with potty humor, do we really need more? Especially when done so poorly? Don’t buy this one. The gross factor just isn’t worth it. EL- NO.

And yet this book and it's sequel are hit's with the 5-8 year olds at our school. They're rarely in the library because as soon as they're returned someone else borrows them!

That's good to know, Mrs. Keane! This is one of those cases where children want the potty humor and adults "just don't get it", I guess.
