Nattie’s mouth was a little crooked. Her legs were a bit shorter than usual, and one horn was too straight, like a unicorn’s horn. But Mia thought Nattie was perfect. In a read-aloud picture book for children who love animals, award-winning writer and sheep breeder Marlene M. Bell presents Nattie the lamb’s true story. MIA AND NATTIE is a heartwarming book that teaches readers about problem-solving, teamwork, and love. On a visit to her grandma’s farm, eight-year-old Mia discovers a newborn, orphaned lamb outside in the cold and takes her to the laundry room, naming her Nattie. As she tries to nurse the lamb back to health, Mia discovers that Nattie is different from the other lambs and struggles to fit in with them like Mia does with other kids her age. When her grandmother says she will sell Nattie to a neighbor, Mia must come up with a plan to keep her friend around—one that will show the family just how special Nattie truly is.
This is the story of a lamb that was too small and the little girl who loved her. Mia lived with her Grandma at the farm. When Nattie was born the mother sheep didn’t have milk for her. Mia brought her indoors and fed her with a bottle.
Later, Grandma said that the sheep must live outside. Mia was worried about Nattie and tried to help her adjust to her new outdoor home. Grandma then decided to sell her to a neighboring farm, because Nattie wasn’t able to have lambs of her own.
Mia begged her Grandma to keep the little lamb. She had to show her Grandma how important Nattie could be. Your children will love to read the conclusion and find out what Mia can do that the other sheep can’t.
This is a beautiful story about how everyone, no matter how small, is significant. When Mia helped Nattie, she seemed tall and significant.
This is a beautiful book with attention to detail in the artwork, heavy paper, and hardback quality.
Marlene M. Bell is an award-winning writer, artist, and crazy sheep lady who resides in beautiful East Texas. Her renown sheep photographs grace the covers of many livestock magazines where she also writes newsy articles about raising sheep from her hands-on experience. Marlene offers the first of her children’s picture books, Mia and Nattie: One Great Team which is based on true events from the Bell’s ranch. It’s a touching story of compassion and love between a little girl and her lamb. Marlene shares her life with her husband and dreadfully spoiled horned Dorset sheep: a large Maremma guard dog named Tia, and cats, Hollywood, Leo, and Squeaks. The cats believe they rule the household—and do.
