Summary: Chicken, Pig, and Cow are very happy together in their Popsicle stick barn, so when Horse arrives, not everyone is pleased—especially Chicken, who points out that Horse takes up a lot of space. – from Annick Press

I actually hadn’t read Where is the Green Sheep? before but was happy to get a Spanish dual language version since I’m teaching my kids and myself Spanish.
It’s quite a cute story and my girls loved it. They especially liked “reading” the Spanish words they already knew. I love dual language books. I’m just not sure why there is a Bath Sheep, Bed Sheep, Band Sheep, and Clown Sheep. Most of the others make sense, I’m just not sure why they chose these.

Summary: Is it really true that cows can’t jump, gorillas can’t swim and sloths can’t leap? Yes, but discover what these and other animals do, as they swing, scamper and glide.
I was sent the paperback and board book to review. I prefer the paperback personally but the board book would be good for younger readers. There are 3-4 words per page which would make this a great book for the children to help read (from memory) after hearing the story many times. My 5 year old tried to guess what each animal could do and was right quite a few times!
For such a simple book, I really love it and donated the board book version to our playgroup so many more kids can enjoy it.
