'Sheep Don't Go to School' contains a whole flock of mad and magical poems from Eastern Europe. There are silly rhymes, surreal tales and serious stories from strange places-all bleating with wordplay, riddling, and true magic. These weirdly wonderful poems have been shepherded into English from Albania, Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, and the former Yugoslavia. Aimed at children up to 12 or 13, this is a terrific way for young children to learn about and experience both poetry and the life of these ""exotic"" European countries.
