I started by halving and coring an apple. I also peeled mine since my kids like them that way but you wouldn't have to.
We have a few different sheep and lamb books to go with this one:
Mary and Her Little Lamb tells the story of the real girl behind the song. Mary nurses a little lamb back to health after it is rejected by its mother at birth. She adores the lamb and the lamb adores her. He (say it with me) follows her to school one day. The author describes how Mary tried to hide the lamb beneath her desk, only to have him follow her to the front of the room when she is called to the board. The illustrations in this book are folkart paintings and just amazing. I got this book for Lainey, who loves the song, but it was Drew who was really interested in it. This would also be a great book for older readers.
Little Lamb's Easter Surprise is an Easter book perfect for preschoolers about a lamb who wishes for a friend. He begins finding colorful Easter eggs and eventually finds the little bunny who has hidden them. It's Little Lamb's turn to hide the eggs for his new friend Little Bunny.
Wool Gathering: A Sheep Family Reunion is a collection of funny rhyming poems about a family of sheep coming together. Each poem describes a member of the family (Sister Alabaster, a Kung-fu master, knows her chops, while Supersheep has steel wool) or an activity from the picnic (baa-dminton or baseball, during which the infield gets eaten.)
