Taken from Chapter 9: Shearing sheep A sheep's wool grows throughout the summer, fall, and winter. By the time spring comes, the wool is very heavy for the sheep to carry around. It must be sheared off. Shearing does not hurt the sheep. It is like getting a haircut.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3?These titles from Canada succeed with mixed results. Dairy Farming does not mention that there are many breeds of dairy cows, but discusses the history of pasteurization. It has too many broad general statements that lead to wrong conclusions. Two photos and a drawing show unsanitary conditions in the milking parlor. Cynthia McFarland's Cows in the Parlor (Atheneum, 1990; o.p.) is a better choice. Sheep Farming is more successful. Health concerns and nutrition are briefly addressed. Different types of wool are mentioned, as are the different kinds of sheep dogs and guard animals that sheep farmers use. The series title derives its name from the third paragraph of text that instructs readers to shout, "Hooray for..." the next time they encounter a product made from wool or milk. This may be intended to enliven the text but it comes across as silly. The format is attractive with large print; colorful, clear photographs; and appropriate illustrations. Unfamiliar terms are printed in boldface and defined in both the text and a glossary. Sheep Farming is an adequate purchase if needed; pass on Dairy Farming.?Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
