An adorable book about a little girl who just cannot get to sleep. Her parents try everything, and finally give up and tell her to count sheep. She has a hard time with this though, because those darn sheep won't hold still long enough for her to count them. Very cute and my kids loved it :).
2010- Fantasy In this book, Sylvie is having a hard time falling asleep. Her mother suggests that she tries to count sheep. However, the sheep do not seem to want to cooperate with Sylvie and they take her on a good adventure.
This book is fun and frantic and exactly how my brain works if I try to count sheep! Children will laugh at the sheep hijinks and will, most certainly, learn the word "exasperating." I look forward to doing this with Bookworms.
Endearing sheep help Sylvie go to sleep after she's exhausted trying to keep up with them. Nice selection for preschool age storytime...especially if there is a sheep, beach or bedtime theme involved.

Very entertaining story about a girl's adventures with the sheep she is trying to count in an attempt to fall asleep. Including a trip to a beach and sheep on a sailboat.

Completely adorable!! I know the feeling of wanting your children to go to sleep, and this story is right on the money!

The Sleep Sheep is a really cute book which my son Sam enjoyed. It has really fun pictures and is a great bedtime story.
This is wonderful, nice twist on counting sheep book.

Yet another illustrator who can't accurately draw knitting.
Not a new concept, but very well executed and rather funny.
author of Lola at the Library- a favorite!
Help getting to sleep with sheep can take awhile.

I am so lucky to spend my time working with books and stories. I work one day a week running groups for babies, toddlers and their parents at a local library; I spend two days a week writing and six days a week as publisher at the tiny independent publisher, Alanna Books.
In my spare time, I read - what a wonderful life!
There are some Children's Books on my shelves (obviously) but for a more compr
