Children's picture book. Emma has a hard time falling asleep, so she tries counting sheep. She counts up to 107 sheep, but something has happened to the 108th sheep. The illustrations in this book are fascinating, also the paper used in this book has great texture. Use in a unit about counting in the hundred's, nighttime or problem solving.
This is a really sweet bedtime story about a little girl that can't fall asleep. She decides to count sheep, only the 108th sheep can't seem to jump over her one will be able to go to sleep if he isn't up for the task. The book has really darling black & white illustrations.

Sweet likeable book about a theme most children would be able to relate to. It didn't make the earth move for me but I liked it and enjoyed the lively illustrations. I am happy to read this to children

Good book! Cute story, nice illustrations and super math reinforcement for kids just learning numbers over 100. The feel of the paper made this book especially fun.

Love the story. Not too long & not too short. My daughter loves it before nap time. Helps that the character is her same name. Thanks Aunt Kerry. Perfect find
as emma tries to fall asleep, the 108th sheep cannot leap over her bed so she helps him by sawing a hole in the headboard for him...adorable. cool pictures.

Nice book. Interesting art. I picked this book out since 108 happened to be one of my favorite numbers (oddly enough). I liked it.

Everyone has heard of counting sheep when you can't fall asleep, so this could start with a universal memory.
