Sheep Go to Sleep by Nancy E. Shaw

It's time for bed but the sheep just can't settle down. Never fear, a trusty sheepdog is here to help. What will it take to get these restless sheep to bed? A hug? A blanket? A drink of water? Will this dedicated collie ever get these bleating sheep to sleep? From the team behind the bestselling SHEEP IN A JEEP, this sweet and silly sleepy time tale is perfect for anyone putting a demanding little one to bed.


The story is illustrated with Apple s signature colored-pencil drawings; they are sweet and soft, just right for bedtime...This book will be a favorite for any reluctant sleepyheads School Library Journal The combination of formula and subject is such a natural it's a wonder Shaw and Apple waited this long to put them together. A beguiling bedtime book and a nice choice for just before nap time. Kirkus The endearing colored-pencil illustrations portray the animals

...this amiable picture book is just right for bedtime reading. Booklist Apple's soft colored-pencil illustrations set a peaceful pastoral scene, while the soothing assonant sounds of the text ask young listeners to, well, begin, counting their own sheep. Horn Book Magazine
