Synopsis

Sheep Go to Sleep by Nancy Shaw, Margot Apple

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 sleepytime tale is perfect for anyone putting a demanding little one to bed. This sturdy board book is just right for little hands.

Reviews

-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

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
