"Beep Beep Sheep in a jeep on a hill that's steep.""Sheep in a Jeep" is well loved by the preschool and early-reader sets for its slapstick story of five sheep (in a jeep) and silly sound effects especially when the jeep goes splash and thud in the mud Nancy Shaw's rollicking rhymes are Seuss-snappy, and Margot Apple's appealing pencil illustrations are expressive and hilarious. This 2010 board book edition, just right for small hands, includes a Make Your Own Sheep activity (Think cotton balls.) Shear delight. Don t miss Shaw and Apple's other sheep-heaped titles in board book form: "Sheep in a Shop," "Sheep on a Ship," "Sheep Out to Eat," "Sheep Trick or Treat," and the lap-size board book edition of "Sheep in a Jeep"
