Board Book Review: Hide-n-Sheep

One thing is certain: whatever animals are on the page, one of those animals is not like the others!

Cover Copy

The star of Go to Sheep is back in this playful board book, but this time he’s not going to sleep, he’s playing a game of “Hide ’n’ Sheep!” Join the fun as the sheep tries to convince us that he’s all the other animals on the farm—from pigs to chicks!



This is a super cute little—surprisingly—counting book! At first glance you wouldn’t expect this to have numbers involved, but it actually makes perfect sense with how the hide-n-sheep activity goes along. You see, the sheep blends into the various farm animal routines on each page. Some of them are exactly what the animals would be doing, and some of them are quite silly, but one thing is certain: whatever number of animals it claims there are on that page, one of those animals is not like the others! On a couple of those pages, we read that we are especially not supposed to be concerned about that one should-be-small-but-is-actually-sheep-sized animal. It’s all super cute, like playing hide and seek with a one year old (who most definitely thinks you can’t see her when she has her hands on top of her head), and makes for a good giggle!
