Learn counting and colors in this board book about five silly sheep! Read and laugh as five sheep with fleece as white as snow become one red sheep, one blue sheep, one yellow sheep, one green sheep, and one purple sheep until the whole flock is an array of colors! With this simple board book, children will be able to change the color of the sheep on each spread through inventively placed die-cuts! They will also learn to count from one to five in this silly story that ends, of course, with the farmer shearing the sheep to create his multicolored scarf!
