I love *Mem Fox, well I don't actually know her but I love her books (most of them; there are a couple of dodgy ones...Night noises comes to mind). My wee girl enjoyed this book so much when she was about one...not talking but raising both her hands, palms up, and looking at me quizzically each time I asked the question "where is the green sheep". As she got older she would grab the book and turn the pages madly to find him - squealing with delight when she did.
Now that she is very nearly two the enthusiasm has not waned...she is learning colours and opposites, nouns and a bit of all round cuteness.
Happy birthday baby Bloom ...and to your mamma who loved you long before you were born. xx
If you fancy making a sheep, a rainbow of sheep or just a little white sheep visit Linda's etsy shop mamma4earth for this pattern... you might just find yourself buying a few extra patterns...alpaca, lion, goose, hedgehog....(I did) And if you can't knit, Linda will knit one for you!
*Mem Fox is probably Australia’s most highly regarded picture-book author. Her first book, Possum Magic, is the best selling children’s book ever in Australia, with sales of over three and a half million cpoies. Mem has written over thirty picture books for children and five non-fiction books for adults, including the best-selling Reading Magic, aimed at parents of very young children.I can highly recommend Reading Magic...my copy is missing, borrowed and not returned (they obviously thought highly of it too).
