Wild About Books Wednesday- Sheep in a Jeep

Today I am once again linking up with Scarlett over at Speech is Sweet to bring you Wild About Books Wednesday!  The book I chose to share with you this week is Sheep in a Jeep by Nancy Shaw.  This book is entertaining and so fun to read aloud!  

In essence, this story is about some sheep who go on a disastrous ride in a jeep.  All starts well, but these are not the smartest sheep on the farm and they quickly get stuck.  Luckily, some passing pigs are able to get them out of the mud and on their way again. All seems well until the chauffeur sheep forgets to steer and crashes the jeep into a tree. Although the sheep are all OK, the jeep did not fare as well. Spoiler alert-  here is a picture of the final page.  

I like this book for several reasons.  Firstly, it rhymes, which is always good.  Second, it is great for targeting the /sh/ sound in the initial word position.  Third, it has very simple syntax with some basic descriptive vocabulary.  

Instead of sharing with you a bunch of ideas that I have for this book, I did some searching and found some "outside resources" for you to check out.
