Sheep in a Jeep


I don't know why, but Daniel finds "Sheep in a Jeep" by Nancy Shaw to be absolutely, roll on the floor laughing, hysterical. I mean, he just went into full belly laughs tonight while we were reading it, to the point where he was having trouble catching his breath! I'm not sure what exactly sets him off. Is it the simple rhyming text? "Sheep in a jeep on a hill that's steep." "Uh-oh, jeep won't go." They all get out to push: "Sheep shove. Sheep grunt. Sheep don't think to look up front." (This is the part where the belly laughs start.) Or is it the pictures of 5 sheep falling down in the mud while trying to chase the jeep which has now gone downhill? Whatever it is, it works. Luckily, there are more books in the series that we will be exploring:

"Sheep Take a Hike"
"Sheep Out to Eat"
"Sheep on a Ship"
"Sheep Trick or Treat"

Maybe it was the rhythm or maybe it was the Sheeps on the Jeep itself... It seems that it has no Jeep door on the picture is really old and has used Jeep parts... Tell the sheeps to buy some doors...lol..Anyway, happy reading my friend...
