A classic Mar 19, 2008
This book is excellent. I still have the original from my childhood, but it's a bit beat up, so I recently purchased a new copy. I believe it teaches kids a great lesson about how some animals just aren't cut out to be pets, despite how cute they are or how attached to them we may be. The pictures are bright and colorful, which is really great for pre-school aged kids, especially.
one of my childhood favorites Apr 12, 2007
I may be 25 years old, but this book still stands out as being one of my top favorites as a toddler. I used to read this book probably every day and wish I had my own little lamb to play with! When I have children, I will definitely be reading this book to them.
Girl raises lamb for the summer Mar 25, 2005
This book is in line with others in the series, featuring attractive photos of a young child and a cute animal; in this case the story revolves around Emmy and her lamb, Timothy.
The gentle story has Emmy raising the lamb from infancy over the course of a summer. The lamb has some garden-variety misadventures around the home, such as knocking over a bucket of apples. When the lamb accidentally upends the picnic table at a children's birthday party, Emmy's father says that the time has come for him to rejoin his flock at the Wetherbee farm.
This is an odd book in that it features a child giving up a beloved pet, but chooses not to dramatize that action. Emmy sheds no tears, and seems to feel no qualms about returning Timothy to the Wetherbee Farm. This may or may not be a good story for children who are placed into this unfortunate situation to hear.
Given that this seems to be a wash as far as teaching children a valuable lesson, I think that the book needs to be more entertaining than it is. The pictures are, in some cases, beautiful, but I'm not sure that this will hold the attention of toddlers.
great children's book Mar 15, 2001
I owned this book as a child and 20 years later I am still fond of it. A sweet story about a young's girls love of caring for a new lamb. LArge color photographs throughout book. A nice addition for any child's library.
This is a wonderful book for children and the young at heart Mar 31, 1999
I remeber this book from my childhood and it has stuck with me for many years. Because of this I am ordering myself a copy of it now. The photographs are adorable and the story is charming. I recomend this book to all.
