Baabwaa and Wooliam (Candlewick, $16.99) are two sheep living a quiet life: Baabwaa loves to knit, and Wooliam spends most of his time reading. One day, however, they decide to set out in search of something extraordinary when they encounter a wolf in sheep’s clothing. What follows is a friendship mixed with a sprinkle of danger, as Wooliam endeavors to teach the wolf how to read. David Elliott’s clever story makes for a wonderful read-aloud, while Melissa Sweet’s layered illustrations add even more fun to this humorous tale. Ages 3-6.
