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.

This nursery rhyme is about a sheep who makes wool. He is visited by several friends who each have a special request. These friends range from cats requesting milk to a mouse requesting cheese. The only problem is that Black Sheep does not have any of those items to give.This book was one of my son's first books that his grandmother gave him and it is one of his favorites. This is a great nursery rhyme for preschoolers and kindergarteners. The colorful illustrations help teach a great lesson in giving. For a classroom extension, I would have students bring to school their most prized possession to do a show and tell. Another idea would be to assign each child or let them choose a character in the story. They would then draw a picture of that character taking their something special to Black Sheep.

Part Bb/Picture BookTrapani, I. (2001). Baa baa black sheep. Watertown, MA: Charlesbridge.Trapani takes the traditional nursery rhyme of ¿Baa Baa Black Sheep¿ and creates a story that is sure to grab the attention of young readers. Many animals go to the black sheep looking for different kinds of food. Each animal is always denied, so the animals begin to think that the black sheep is unkind and will not share. They finally realize that the black sheep is kind and has been spending time knitting gifts for each of the animals. Ages 4-7.

This is such a charming take on the children's nursery rhyme. As a knitter, it is especially so. There is even a moral to the story!
