This small red book about a sheep named Selma contains
much more than just an awfully likable sheep chewing grass.
Selma is a wise and sensible animal. In a few pages, she shows us the secret to being happy and content in life. It’s a simple concept presented in a straightforward way, with minimal text, minimal color, and minimal detail. Children will enjoy the repetition in the book, and everyone can enjoy Selma’s high spirits, which are captured so well in the illustrations.
Selma just exudes life as she fully enjoys her days and her night-time sleep. Selma will get you thinking and maybe even changing.
Everyone can use Selma in their lives.
