Baa, Baa, Black Sheep by Jane Cabrera- OPTIONAL

Cabrera, Jane. Baa, Baa, Black Sheep, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2015. $16.95. The familiar nursery song is illustrated in this book. The pictures follow along a black sheep and a little miss as she asks him for his wool. The reader gets to see all of the things Baa, Baa Black Sheep is going to do with the wool. At the end of the book when the sheep has given all his wool away, the little miss gives him something else to wear until it grows back. The pictures in this book are very soft and sweetly done and definitely have appeal. I did feel that the book was just a little lengthy and redundant with the same question being stated so many times. I think some younger readers would get impatient with that. There is some sheet music in the back to go along with the complete lyrics, which is a nice addition. PRE-K - OPTIONAL. Reviewed by: Shay. School Librarian
