Sheep Go to Sleep by Nancy Shaw, Margot Apple


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.


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

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.

The endearing colored-pencil illustrations portray the animals

...this amiable picture book is just right for bedtime reading.

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.
