FEEDING THE SHEEP
Farrar, Straus and Giroux; illustrated by Andrea U'Ren.
A mother and daughter discuss how to care for sheep, and throughout their conversation the mother creates a sweater to keep her daughter warm.
"UíRenís action-filled, brightly colored double-page spreads convey physical exertion and concentration as well as joy and satisfaction. There is a strong sense of depth and detail, and, in a subtle touch, the little girlís play mirrors her motherís work. The collaboration of text and illustration is seamless and presents a complex operation in a manner completely accessible and understandable to young readers. Lovely." Kirkus Reviews, 1/15/2010
A nonfiction picture book, published by Roaring Brook Press and illustrated by Robert Andrew Parker.
