Mother Goose rhyme in the edition. However, when I read the rhyme to Jack, he gets more from the rhyme than merely the onomatopoeia that Owen hears. I give Jack a history lesson about early England. I explain that the history of the meaning of this rhyme goes back the late 13th to the 15th centuries when the Plantagenet kings beginning with Edward I started taxing wool. However, the issue about the three bags full wasn't obvious to even an intelligent child like Jack.
That is asking the black sheep whether he or she has any wool. Black wool had a higher resale value than ordinary wool due to the fact it would not take costly time and material to dye the wool. The next 5-verses are also often misunderstood by the casual reader. Many non aficionados think that the master and the dame are some landed gentry couple who are buying a couple of bags of wool.

There is a little girl who nits for different animals. The most famous one, the sheep begins to lose his wool. Good thing the little girl has a plan to help the sheep. I think it helps children to expand on rhyming.
Putting it to a cute story also helps children to stay engaged. They can also discuss how the girl was helpful, and a time that they helped a friend. Apr 29, Lindsay rated it really liked it Shelves: nursery. None 2. PreK-2 3.

This story is a version of the original rhyme where the little girl begins knitting sweaters, hats, scarves and wigs for all different critters and friends until Black Sheep is without any wool left on its body. I liked this take on the traditional tale because it's original and creative. The illustrations are detailed and colorful, making for a visually entertaining take on the familiar rhyme. This book could be used as a read aloud, or even for a lesson on details. Stude 1. Students could recall the characters and corresponding items that were knit and gifted to them.

Feb 20, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: books-to-sing , books-for-young-children , parents-and-twos. This is a fun book. There is a lot of humor in here, and Cabrera does a great job of writing words that fit the traditional tune well. There are a lot of references to other nursery rhymes and stories that would be fun to talk about with older children. I read this book with groups of two year olds and their parents, and although some of the humor and allusions were lost on the young kids, it still went over well.
