Farmer Dale’s Red Pickup Truck
Farmer Dale is heading for town in his red pickup truck full of hay. Along the way he meets various animals that need a ride and he is more than happy to help. But what happens when the truck is full and more animals need a ride? And what happens when the old truck is not able to carry any more animals without breaking down? A fun read with each animal having their own unique personality, Farmer Dale’s Red Pickup Truck is recommended for children ages three through seven.

Charlie and the New Baby (Charlie the Ranch Dog)
“Charlie and the New Baby” is just as remarkable as all the “Charlie” books before it. His antics and remarks keep the child’s attention along with the fantastic illustrations! It’s a book your child will ask to be read to them over and over. Along with that, there is a great recipe that is presented at the end of the book, which will let your child experience even more “Charlie” time! I just love this book and your child will too!

On the Farm
The illustrations are beautiful. The woodcuts are colourful without being overly complex. The text is short and descriptive for each animal. I would love to see more books from this author and illustrator duo as this is one of the best picture books I’ve seen though my taste tends towards the more old-fashioned books with less flash such as Virginia Lee Burton’s and Dr. Seuss.

Mary had A Sleepy Sheep
What a wonderful twist to a familiar nursery rhyme! This sheep, although sleepy-sleepy-sleepy, was so cute and funny. Mary does everything to try to keep him awake – and her attempts keep children smiling. The rhymes are cute, and the illustrations are amazing. We had to read the book three times alone at the first sitting. And then we put it down? Oh no!  Buy Mary had A Sleepy Sheep from Amazon now.



The Story of Ferdinand
“Ferdinand” is one of the best-loved children’s books of all time, and with good reason. This timeless tale of a little bull in Spain who doesn’t mind being different from the rest of the herd strikes an instant chord in youngsters and oldsters alike. Ferdinand is a gentle creature who would rather sit around and smell the flowers than butt his way through life; but when he planks himself down one day on a bumblebee, he gets a jolt that propels him into the bullring in Madrid. The story is funny and endearing, and the illustrations are hilarious. Generations of preschoolers have loved this book, and it looks good for generations to come.

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. Shear delight.
