Brookie and her Lamb by M.B. Goffstein
Brookie wants to teach her lamb to sing, but all he sings is Baa, baa, baa; she tries to teach him to read, but all he can read is Baa, baa, baa. A bit discouraged, but undeterred, Brookie takes her lamb for a head-clearing walk. She gazes at the lamb grazing, and a smile returns to her face. Back at home, she reconsiders her lesson plan and arrives at a creative solution, a happy ending for both lamb and girl.
Originally published in 1967 and now back in print, this utterly delightful tale of mutual love and appreciation is a perfect read-aloud book for young children but that doesn't mean to say the grown-ups won't love it too!
With the fewest possible words in the best possible order accompanied by her precise line drawings, M.B. Goffstein was a master of the art of children's books creating picture books of elemental simplicity, subtle humour, and undeniable charm.
