Amos's Sweater by Janet Lunn

Amos is old, Amos is cold and Amos is tired of giving away all his wool! Janet Lunn's charming story about a grumpy old sheep determined to hold onto his wool is one of my favourite books to share with my girls at bedtime. Amos is a prickly character, but amusing and endearing. The story's sweet ending leaves a smile on our faces every time we read it.
