Synopsis

Peg the Little Sheepdog by Sandra Klaassen

Peg the little sheepdog is too shy to be a good farm dog. All Peg's brothers and sisters have found new homes -- but who wants a sheepdog that's scared of lambs? Peg is lonely until a new family move in nearby and take her home. They love her but Peg isn't used to living in a house and she's still not very brave. Will she ever be a good family dog? This touching story of family love and teaching a new pet is a wonderful companion to Sandra Klaassen's much-loved Uan the Little Lamb. Her heartwarming illustrations abound with gentle fun and the beauty of the Scottish Hebrides.

Reviews

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
