Late last night I lay in bed and found I couldn't sleep. So I scrunched my eyes up tightly and counted woolly sheep. In this humorous bedtime story, a little girl decides she must count sheep in order to fall to sleep, and starting at ten, her sheep begin to suffer through humorous mishaps as she happily drifts off to sleep. Each new spread illustrates sheep flying off in different directions, unable to control their roller skates, the slippery floor, or their crazy dance moves. Children and parents will laugh and learn in this combination bedtime and counting book. Philippa Rae's sing-songy verse and Stephanie Rohr's bright, whimsical illustrations provide a visual counting aid, as well as complete entertainment. Count the Sheep to Sleep is sure to help children fall asleep to their own leaping sheep, transforming bedtime from a struggle into a fluffy white parade!
