What's a sheep to do when she discovers that her barnyard friends want more than wool? Can she find a way to please everyone? Follow this kind and compassionate heroine as she demonstrates her ability to give. Children and parents alike will discover a valuable lesson in wanting and giving this unusual twist on an old favorite.
This charming story told in lyrical verse will inspire young readers to share the best of themselves. An industrious black sheep has wool aplenty, but little else for her friends. Horse needs hay, Mouse needs cheese, and Pig needs slop, but the poor black sheep has none of these. When her dissatisfied friends confront Sheep about her inability to share, they find that their lovely friend has knitted a special gift for each of them with her very own wool. Clever illustrations reveal delightful surprises as endearing new characters frolic from page to page in bold, generous color.
