Summary(CIP): A headstrong sheep rescues the flock when their shepherd is injured.

REVIEW: OK, maybe I am just a sucker for appealing art..., but I really liked this story about a sheep who pushes the boundaries of sheepdom, even though some reviewers thought it was mundane or average. Charlotte is a free spirit who doesn’t mind being different and we all continue to need to hear that message! This book received the NY Times Illustrated Books Award – check out the page where all the sheep look di...more

After reading Brave Charlotte and the Wolves I just had to see if there were any more Brave Charlotte books. It's a great story of bravery. Charlotte is not like other sheep. She climbs. She explores. She goes near the dangerous road. And the older sheep say, "tut, tut." But when the elderly shepherd falls and breaks his leg, he depends on Charlotte's bravery to be rescued. Winsome illustrations that will make you fall in love with sheep in general and Charlotte in particular.

Charlotte had always been different from the other sheep and none of the other sheep understood why Charlotte acted differently from them. Charlotte was always finding dangerous and daring activities to complete and nothing could stop her. When trouble calls, Charlotte answers and isn't afraid to go for help and try to save the day. Charlotte is not afraid to stand out from the other sheep. In this wonderful children's book, children can learn that it is okay to stand out from the crowd and foll...more

Charlotte is my hero, she teaches kids to be strong and to face new things. And most importantly that no matter how small you are you are capable of big things. Some might argue that young kids are not capable of understanding these concepts, and maybe directly they can't. But a story like Brave Charlotte makes them feel good, and when kids feel good they rise to their potential quickly, to me that's more important.

Charlotte is a rebel without a cause that leaves all the older sheep saying 'tut,tut,tut' but when the shepard breaks his leg and the old sheep dog is well, too old, Charlotte steps in to save the day by going to get the farmer and help for all of the sheep. Good message to do what makes you happy and you can't go wrong with a sheep.

Charlotte is a rebellious sheep who likes to venture off on her own. The others in the flock "tut tut" but she's not afraid of anything. One day, her bravery comes in handy. Double page, full bleed paintings with text embedded.

I liked this book much more than the 2nd one. This one is a solid 3 for me. Like the being your own person, and doing things sheep (aka people) think you can't or shouldn't do. I like Charlotte...she saved the day!

This book was about a sheep who acted like a goat and was very brave. Charlotte did things that most sheep don't do like climb trees. She was brave enough to get help for the shepherd and saved the day!
Esther May
This is a good book about a sheep who is a little different than the rest. I liked the pictures and how the book ends. Cute read. Theme's include, being brave and being yourself.

March 2012: Josephine loves this one. I think we've checked it out from the library on three or four separate occasions.
