Star Rating: ★★★★

The lambs have decided to play a game of hide-and-seek, and Little Lamb is determined that she will find the best hiding spot in the world. So she runs into the bushes – surely it is the best place to hide – but past the bushes she sees a field… and beyond the field she sees a barn, and beyond the barn a pond, and then she realizes that she is very far away from her mother, indeed. She begins to wonder – will ever see her mother again?

Discussion.

This story was not only sweet but also educational. In each new location, Little Lamb meets a new animal and learns a little about it. Another  neat feature was that every time Little Lamb is illustrated, her coat is covered with a fuzzy material. This way, whenever she is depicted amongst a group of lambs, we can find her!

Conclusion. Very sweet.
