Overview

Sheep, Sheep, Sheep, Help Me Fall Asleep

Written and with photographs by Arlene Alda

When you can't fall asleep, counting sheep is certainly one way to make you drowsy. On the other hand, when you don't want to fall asleep, counting other animals doing silly things is clearly a great way to keep yourself awake! And that's just what this preschooler does as soon as Mom leaves the room.

Children and parents alike will find delight in this multifunctional book. It's a rhyming bedtime reader, a counting book, and an animal identification picture book — it's three books in one!

A child tries to fall asleep by counting sheep and sees a variety of interesting animals before the woolly visitors show up.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
PW praised the ``breezy rhyming text and arresting photographs'' in this bedtime read-aloud for young insomniacs. Ages 3-7. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-- In short, rhyming lines and high-quality pictures, this story investigates what happens when a restless child can't sleep. While trying to conjure up some sheep to count, images of hippos, gorillas, and other farm and wild animals take over his imagination. Finally, he rolls over and finds that first one, then two, then a flock of sheep come to mind, as sleep finally overtakes him. The centerpiece of the book is the photography, shot at the Windsor Safari Park and elsewhere in England. Yes, it is lovely, framed on each page by large white borders to concentrate attention on the sharp images and beautiful colors. Ultimately, however, this is a glorious photo album of animals with an insubstantial story line, and not a bedtime choice. --Ruth K. MacDonald, Purdue University Calumet, Hammond, IN

    Sheep, Sheep, Sheep... Wonderful Children's Book

    The first Arlene Alda book I've read. Simple rhymes my daughter (3) could soon memorize - she now 'reads' the book to her little brother. He delights in the animal photograpy, as every child will. Written in the 1st person with a wonderful job framing photos so every child can easily identify themselves in the voice of the storyteller.
