Reading Time: The Sheep of the Lal Bagh

Unfortunately, this book is out of print, but there's a good chance you can find it at your public library.

Ramesh is a sheep who lives in the Lal Bagh, a public park in India. His job is to keep the park's grass "mowed." He does a good, creative job of it, but he's best at is loving the people who come to the park. In an effort to modernize, the village scrapes up enough money to buy a real lawn mower, and Ramesh is out of a job.Will the park be the same without Ramesh there to give kids rides on his back and crop the grass in interesting patterns?

The kids in your co-op will like this book. It's a soothing book, perfect for times when you need to get everyone back under control.
