This is part of a "Wee Little" series of books written by Lauren Thompson and illustrated by one of my favorites, John Butler. Look also for Wee Little Bunny and Wee Little Chick. I love these books for little ones because the text is short and simple, the pictures are big and gorgeous. Because the illustrations are everything with pictures books, I'll keep my comments to that. The colors are soft and easy on the eyes but not pastel really.

This is a wee little book, with a very short and sweet story, and adorable, but not precious, illustrations.
Perfect for a library story time--
Large format
clear illustrations
simple text
repetitive elements in text
situations relatable to young children...
Although you might want to clue them in that "wee" means "very small".

A shy little lamb is invited to play by meadow creatures -- "flouncy pouncy" rabbit, "cheery crickety" cricket, "jolly" robin redbreast, "swooping old" hoot owl, "bitty little" mouse. Lamb prefers to hide behind his mother.

The illustrations have a soft, dewey and Spring-like appearance that will appeal to babies and toddlers.

Through its use of alliteration and assonance, the book will promote phonological awareness.
A nice calm bedtime book with pretty pictures. Few words, so that is a plus too, as it doesn't take forever to read (I'm looking at you Skippyjon and Dr Seuss).
Perfect book for children who are introverted. Butler's illustrations are, as always, warm and fuzzy - ideal for the targeted age.

This sweet story accurately portrays how shy some littles are when they are first exposed to the world beyond Momma!
Precious, precious, precious! Wonderful woolly illustrations by the unbelievably talented John Butler.
A shy little lamb wants to stay right by mama. Nice illustrations of spring time animals.
Not much to say about this but.... cute book especially for a shy child. Ages 2+
Another toddler favorite at our house.
