This book was really cute. It uses rhyming and alliterations: ship and ship, ship and trip. This book could serve as a writing model because students can use rhyming and alliterations in their own writing. ( )

Yet another grand slam by who is becoming one of my new favorite children's authors, Nancy Shaw. Once again, Nancy Shaw has her sheep setting out on an adventure; this time on the open seas as pirates with treasure. Nancy Shaw, once again, demonstrates her fun rhyming style matched with the wonderful illustrations of margot Apple. Once again, I find myself wishing I could do one of Nancy Shaw's books for my read aloud, but, clearly, I'm still set on Donald Crews. ( )

Another fun picture book to go along with the Sheep collection. The rhyming along with the large illustrations create a great mood for younger readers especially reading in front of a larger class. Even the font is larger with shorter sentences to really allow the pictures to put together the whole story. ( )

The rhyming misadventures of a group of zany sheep on a pirate ship.

Retelling: This is a rhyming tale of an unfortunate crew of sheep on a ship who nap when they should be navigating. Do they make it home safe? Read to find out.

Thoughts and Feelings: I like how this author plays with sounds. The words are fun to say. I wonder how fast I could read it without stumbling.
