Ewes are Sheep!
It can be frustrating when people say "yous" instead of using the correct pronouns. We are not 'ewes'!
The word “yous” is an English language contraction of the words “you” and “us.” It is often used as a plural pronoun when referring to multiple people, especially in informal contexts.
It is a common misconception that using "yous" as the plural of "you" is grammatically correct. However, this is not the case. When referring to more than one person, it should be "you all", "you guys", or simply just "you". Using "yous" as the plural of "you" is not only incorrect but also considered annoying and disrespectful by many people.
Teaching young children the correct use of pronouns can be a challenging task. However, with the help of our story 'Ewes in the Queue', a tricky concept becomes much easier and more fun. In this story while reading about how the ewes get up to mischief young children learn about the difference between “you” and “ewes” in an engaging and interactive way. Through our unique story based approach, children will gain a better understanding of the correct use of 'ewes' and 'you', enabling them to communicate effectively with others.
By providing engaging stories that are tailored for different age groups, we help children become better communicators and help them gain confidence in their verbal skills. Our stories also introduce them to new vocabulary, allowing them to broaden their range of expression and better understand the world around them.

Disclaimer: language is constantly evolving and 'yous' may well become an accepted plural form of 'you'. But until then...let's continue to teach our kids the difference between 'ewes' and 'you'!
