Ride Along on This Ovine AdventurePage from sheep in a jeep by Nancy Shaw board book

  • What: Sheep in a Jeep
  • When: 6 months and up
  • Why: Adorable, entertaining for wide age range
  • Where: Amazon

I’ve been reading Sheep in a Jeep by Nancy Shaw for over 15 years, and I still love it just as much as the first time I stumbled upon this board book title. The adorable illustrations and fun rhymes hit just the right sweet spot between entertaining and brevity. They last long enough to keep my kids’ interest without boring them, but not too short that I grow tired of reading them over and over again.

I love them so much I got a copy of almost every title when I had my own kids. At ages seven and a half, six years, and three and half, we still read both the paperback and board book editions on a regular basis. I suspect I won’t part with these timeless classics, and instead will hang on to our copies to bequeath to future generations.

These sheep get up to some funny antics with their creative problem solving.

If you already own Sheep in a Jeep, you can expand to Sheep in a Shop,  Sheep Out to Eat, Sheep on a Ship, Sheep Trick or Treat, Sheep Take a Hike, Sheep Blast Off!, and the most recent, Sheep Go to Sleep, to keep up with all the adventures of this fun-loving but bumbling flock of sheep.
