PreSchool-Grade 2-- Emma's father brings home a lamb to keep it warm in the farm kitchen while he goes to look for its mother. Young Emma feeds and plays with it and nearly loses it when she plays hide-and-seek with it in the barn. While the simple text clearly relates the game, the animal's disappearance, and the satisfying conclusion, it is the pictures that eloquently tell this story. Double-page spreads in delicate colors capture the realistic details of the old kitchen, stone buildings, and fences of an English farm. A plump gray tabby and her kittens appear in each picture, echoing the coloring of the lamb as well as the actions of the little girl. These scenes can be contrasted with Donald Carrick's small pictures in night hues for Carol Carrick's In the Moonlight, Waiting (Clarion, 1990), also about sheep. --Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
