No Sleep for the Sheep! by Karen Beaumont

Sheep just wants to sleep, but the other animals keep interrupting him!

What I thought: I'm going to have fun with this book at story time. Let me count the ways: 1) Farm Animals; 2) Animal Noises; 3) Repetition; and 4) Who's in the picture? (you can see the animals in the shadows before they enter the barn.) A great story with lively illustrations--so colorful. My favorite illustration is sheep finally sleeping.

Story Time Themes: Farm Animals, Sleeping/Bedtime, Sheep
