In the book, Ewe gets tired of grazing in the meadow like the other sheep and ventures out to meet the other animals on the farm. She has some harmless fun as she interacts with her new friends. As a result of her teasing, welcoming personality, the horse, chicken, pig, and other animals all wind up playing together rather than being isolated in their own sections of the farm. I enjoyed the childlike innocence of this book and how Ewe breaks out of the monotony of doing what is expected of her. The story also encourages diversity - having friends from different backgrounds and breaking out of a clique. I suspect that many young children will be learning what an ewe is for the first time and will get a kick out of the ewe vs. you wordplay. The vibrant illustrations were a nice complement to the text, which offers the kind of repetitious phrases and patterns that children enjoy as they can guess what might happen next. But the end comes as a surprise, as even Ewe gets the wool pulled over her eyes. All in all, this richly illustrated picture book is a captivating read that encourages positive values, diversity, and the importance of maintaining a sense of playfulness even when one has a job to do...I'll be on the lookout for more Ewe books!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0988901900, Hardcover)

FOOLING EWE is a beautifully illustrated picture book about Ewe, a precocious young female sheep who is bored grazing in the meadow all alone. Now Ewe wants to play and sets out to amuse herself by playing tricks on Chicken, Cow, Duck, and even Farmer. FOOLING EWE is both a fun narrative and an educational experience as the (ewe vs. you) wordplay provides a sense of interaction between young readers and the characters. So follow along, and see what it's like to be Ewe.
