"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." said.

"Six Sheep Sip Thick Shakes has enough tongue twisters to challenge kids and adults. This is not a story in the usual sense. The only connection between the pages is the ability to tie your tongue into knots. The illustrations playfully express the words on the page, but will not help you read them aloud. These are truly trying twisters for your tongue. Kids will enjoy the entertainingly silly sentences that will have them "giggling, groaning and guffawing" as they (try to) read each aloud.

This unusual book is bound to break up a boring afternoon, add laughter to your day, and have you and your child writing your own tongue twisters after reading Mr. Cleary's instructions, at the end of the book. If six sheep sipping thick shakes does not trip you up, just wait, there might be "two-ton trains transporting twelve three-toed turtles twist trickily on the twin tracks" waiting to trip your tongue and tie it into knots.

"I read this book to my three year old daughter and she LOVED it. I received this digital copy from the publisher via NetGalley, and I couldn't be happier with the result. We all enjoyed looking at the illustrations, and we got many laughs trying out each tongue twister. There are some which are better than others, and I can see where some kiddos just won't be into this sort of thing. But, if you're like us and have a toddler that is into the constant chatter phase, this at least provides some new material. She's a bit young yet to make up anything on her own, but for our "overly-verbal" toddler, this has been a hit. Definitely adding this to the nightly reading list!" said.
