When Sheep Sleep by Laura Joffe Numeroff

When you can't fall asleep, Then, try counting sheep! But what is there to do if the sheep are already asleep?

Lovely, soothing watercolors by award-winning illustrator, David McPhail capture the dreaminess of bedtime, as the calming rhyme lulls any child to sleep.
