The number one rule in Bea's flock is: Sheep are not unique, but Bea hasn't been good at following the rules. She doesn't want to blend in. So while her friends are knitting matching scarves and painting identical pictures, Bea decides to go to the big city - where she can try a new identity - or three!
Bea Rocks the Flock would be great for three to nine year olds. The three and four year olds would like the pictures and the easy words. The older children would like the book, because if they're ever scared to be themselves, Bea could help them solve their problems.
This was a great book. Bea was very funny and she had some really silly ideas. What I liked best is that Bea provides encouragement to kids to be themselves. The one thing I didn't like was the pretty bossy sheep. I didn't like her attitude, because younger kids might think bossiness is okay and it's not.
Out of a possible 5 Stars = Stars!
