"As soon as a young shepherd lies down to nap, his flock
takes off after a butterfly. In rapid succession, the sheep are led by
geese, a cat, pigs, rabbits, fish, and ducks. Their travels take them
into the farmer's yard, his barn, cornfields, woods, and along a stream.
Finally a dog drives them back to their awakening shepherd. He is now
ready to have them follow his lead, but they are too tired. The story
is told in short, simple sentences, one to a page. The action presents
opportunities for colorful views of pastoral scenery. Details are attractively
patterned. Cornstalks, flowers, and rushes are depicted in eye-catching
designs. The stylized graphic art and simple narrative insure the book's
success with the toddler set."
"The animals display a buoyant simplicity that is perfect
for the age level. Be prepared to read this again and again."
