About this title

Synopsis:

This playful read-aloud poem is a glorious celebration of the sheep of Ireland. Told in four parts -- by the shearer, the spinners, the weavers, and the knitters -- A Symphony for the Sheep captures all the beauty, humor, and music of a land known for its traditions of poetry and storytelling.

About the Author:

Caldecott Medalist Mary Azarian is a consummate gardener and a skilled and original woodblock artist. Many of her prints are heavily influenced by her love of gardening, and her turn-of-the-century farmhouse is surrounded by gardens that reveal an artist's vision. Mary Azarian received the 1999 Caldecott Medal for SNOWFLAKE BENTLEY, written by Jacqueline Briggs Martin. She lives, skis, and gardens in Vermont.
