Is there an Aussie household out there that doesn’t have a copy of Where is the Green Sheep? on a shelf somewhere? Over the past 15 years, this beloved story by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek has become a classic.
The book is a lesson for young kids in clever disguise. While it may seem like a simple tale of a search for the missing green sheep, it’s actually jam-packed with learning tools for early literacy.
The interactive story is full of rhyming and repetition to emphasise key learning areas. Colour recognition, opposites, counting and sentence structure are all concepts that are introduced in this clever book. The book also fosters language, vocabulary and cognitive skills, including directional concepts and descriptive language. Such a clever little book!
