The day to day, season to season of caring for a flock of sheep. Written by a Vermont author, Schubert weaves a gentle call and response song of the process from sheep to sweater. A perfect gift for fiber lovers everywhere! — Marika McCoola
Day to day, season to season, Mom tends the family's small flock of sheep, and then shears and washes, cards and dyes, spins and knits. Every step of the way, her little girl watches and asks, "What are you doing?" As playful as it is informative, this rambunctiousread-aloud features a mother and daughter making a game of their warm and wooly enterprise.
