How the SHEEP Helped Win the War
In this book, a sheep talks about World War I and how other sheep helped the US win that war.
Mrs. Wilson, the First Lady of the United States, grew up in Virginia, and her grandma taught her as a child how to crochet, knit, and sew. This came out very handy when she became First Lady because the soldiers at war did not have enough clothes, and she could sew clothes for them. Also, she and Mr. Wilson, the President, brought sheep to the White House’s yard. The sheep kept eating the grass and worked as lawn mowers, so the mowers could actually do more important things (and that was one way they could help win the war). Another way they helped was to provide wool that could be sold for $100,000.
I liked this book. The story wasn’t too exciting, but the pictures of the sheep in the big White House where the President lives were funny.
