Six Sheep Sip Thick Shakes by Brian Cleary

Most of us grew up with "She sells sea shells by the seashore" and "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickeled pepper" that  we were challenged to say three times fast.  A new generation will get a new slew of tongue twisters courtesty of Brian Cleary.  In Six Sheep Sip Thick Shakes, lusciously illustrated by Steve Mack, we are introduced to 23 new ones and children (and adults) will enjoy saying them aloud.  For instance "The water in Flo's Inn flows in frozen."  Mack has shown a penguin in the shower with ice cold water pouring out of the faucet and a Flo's Inn sign outside the bathroom window.  Another cute one is "As a favor my favorite flavor was placed on my plate." A turtle is being served green leaves!  Readers will enjoy the tongue twisters as well as the illustrations.  Read as an ebook arc courtesy of Lerner Publishing Group via Netgalley.
