Woolbur is back! Isn't it great? This is a happy and positive first-day-of-school story about our favorite personable little sheep who is open to new experiences like riding the school bus and eating in the cafeteria. He likes himself and shares his joy with everyone lucky enough to be around him. His parents, worried about their unique boy, grow up a bit themselves. It IS great!— From Leita
The free-spirited, fluffy, one-of-a-kind sheep Woolbur is on his way to school, and he’s MORE than ready…
But Maa and Paa aren’t so sure. What if Woolbur isn’t exactly ready for school?
He’s different. He’s unusual. And his new hairdo is kooky!
At school, Woolbur loves trying new things like drawing outside of the lines and eating grass. (No wonder his parents were worried!)
The rest of his classmates are nervous about their first day and aren’t excited about trying anything new. Will Woolbur’s excitement help show his friends that doing something different, or unusual, or kooky is the best way to get ready for school?
This charming yet spunky follow-up to the beloved Woolbur is the perfect gift for children who march to the beat of their own drum or anyone who needs a little encouragement on their first day of school.
