Baa Baa Black Sheep - Iza Trapani Begins with the well known nursery rhyme. What follows is a mess. Every one of the animals in the town come to the sheep asking her for something. She doesn't have what they need and kindly tells them so. Apparently the animals are offended and join together to confront the sheep. They call her unkind, "mean," and complain that she knits all day. The illustration for this page is complete with all of the animals in a posture of righteous indignation. All is well when the the sheep shows them the beautiful things she has been knitting them. Then they back off, because she has finally given them something. Sure in the end they all promise to share when they have something special to give, but what about being angry when someone has nothing to give? Is it right to expect others to give what they don't have simply because we ask?
