Baby Mountain Sheep

"Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice, 2009"

It is spring in the mountains of Alaska, and a female Dall's sheep is born on the high cliffs, sheltered from predators and the worst of the blowing snow. The lamb has a weak leg, but her heart is strong, and she scrambles over the cliffs after her mother and seeks out the company of other lambs that have also settled in the mountain meadow. Over the short summer months, the lamb will need experience in running up the cliffs when grizzlies and other predators make their way to the meadow. Only then will she be safe from harm as she continues to grow to adulthood in the cold months ahead.

Reviews

PreS-Gr 3-Billed on the back cover as "for the next generation of naturalists," this title follows the first year of life for a young Dall's sheep born in the Alaskan mountains. The husband-and-wife team documents the trials and tribulations of a particular lamb born with a weak leg. Written with a storylike tone and style, the simple yet informative details of the Dall sheep's life are presented in a warm voice sure to please youngsters. An index and "Did You Know?" section conclude the book, with additional facts regarding life span, average size, migration patterns, and diet of the Dall's sheep. The page about mating ("The big ram smells the ewe often. When the ewe is ready to make a baby she has a special smell. That's when the father and mother join together-") is low-key and naturalistic, but may generate questions. Overall, a fine presentation.-Cathie Bashaw Morton, Millbrook Central School District, NY Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
