  3. Right up my street and would love to review

  4. We own a lot of Donovans books they are fantastic esp the pictures would love to own this

  5. When you think of it there are a few nursery rhymes that revolve round sheep! So where better to release a book about sheep than New Zealand! The book contains four timeless nursery rhymes with brilliant illustration. My 2.5 year old was hooked immediately. Each page I bright, colourful and with a little comedy as well topped up with a hint of kiwiana. Think the wool from baa baa black sheep being knitted into an all blacks jersey. Another positive for the book was it has a couple of count the sheep hidden games as well. If anything I is a little short but overall definitely adding to the collection.
