Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?
One for a beard, and one for a wig and one for a tea cozy for a pig.
A sheep has plenty of wool to share with her friend, an avid knitter show showers her community with cozy gifts. But when Sheep's generosity leaves her shivering, the community offers their love and gratitutde - and some handknit gifts to keep warm. Sheet music with guitar chords, along with Cabrera's heart-warming verses, is included.

These interactive favorites are given a new twist by award-winning artist Jane Cabrera and feature her bold, bright, kid-friendly illustrations.
