It's shearing time at the Davis farm, and Bo really wants to be helpful with the sheep. After playing hide and seek with his friend Puffs and always winning, the two have a little disagreement, which they solve by deciding to play a game that Bo has never played before, so he won't have an unfair advantage. Bo has started to have some chores around the farm, and makes sure that he helps Wyatt and Imani out the next day. Darnell asks Bo to help round up the sheep to be sheared, but they won't listen to him! Bo struggles with trying to do his job until Nanny Sheep steps in and gives him some pointers. This helps, but when Puffs goes missing, Bo must use all of his skills to help find his friend and get him back home.
Good Points
This early reader series has so much to recommend it-- great characters, fun story lines, and the most appealing animal illustrations! Bo is an enthusiastic puppy who sometimes gets himself in trouble but always tries to learn how to be better.

I went to the Sheep and Wool festival in Rhinebeck, New York a couple of years ago, and this book would be perfect for young readers to see before going to that! There's lots of good information about shearing (the Baa Baa Shop-- ha!) sheep as well as herding them, although Bo never does find out why the sheep can stay so fluffy while he gets bed head after a brief nap!

This series is perfect for readers who aren't quite strong enough for Klimo's Dog's Diary books or Mile's Puppy Place series, but want to know more about working dogs and have liked Stier's A Dog's Day. I really enjoy the fact that the books are all a little different, and not formulaic; the first book in the series is a mystery, the second a good friendship tale, and this third book shows Bo working. Three additional volumes are being released in October 2021, and I am looking forward to Fireworks Night, The Swimming Hole, and Life is Good, which involves a snow day!
