Go to Sleep, Sheep!  is a cute bedtime board book for toddlers and preschoolers. The book design mimics a barn with doors wide open and inviting you in. The cover features adorable sheep family and raised glitter elements such as the moon and the book title In this story, we first find this family of sheep getting ready for bed. However, the young sheep just aren't ready for bed. Page after page we read through they find some sort of excuse as to why they should stay up. A few reasons listed include needing one more drink of water,  having a tickle fight, reading another story, and so forth. As a parent, I've heard most of these reasons to stay up from my own three children!  The story is written in rhyme so it flows pretty well when reading it aloud. My little one loved repeating the phrase "Go To Sleep Sheep" at the end of each page. After all the excuses and reasons to stay up are through, the sheep cuddle with their mom, say their prayers, and they drift off to sleep much like the child listening to this story should. I love the last page that shows all the animals on the farm asleep together in the barn.  The imagery is very nice. The pages feature full-color full illustrations of scenes you'd likely see on most farms. Aside from the sheep family, there are horses, cows, chickens, pigs, cats, mice, and goats to see and point out to children while reading the story.   Note that God is only mentioned once in this book when the sheep pray to thank Him for the day. There is no scripture included.  Overall, this is a playful story and a fun one to include in a nightly routine especially if your child loves farm animals and the country.

I love how sturdy this book is for little toddler hands, and the cover is rough in spots, along with glitter for them to enjoy the feel, and eye appeal. Perfect for bedtime story, with the day quieting down, yes, it’s time for sleep sheep. Rhyming words and cute pictures to share, it soon becomes a favorite. I received this book through the Publisher Tommy Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.

Published by: Tommy Nelson Illustrated by: Sydney Hanson I like reading children's books and finding new ones for my nieces and nephews. I thought that Go to Sleep, Sheep! looked like a fun book and that is why I chose to read and review it. The illustrations: I love the pictures in this book! So cute! And, I love how one of the sheep has glasses - I have two little nieces with glasses and I know that they will like seeing them on the sheep. Who This Book is For: This is good for babies and toddlers and their tired parents. What I liked: My favorite part about the book is the pictures. The sheep are really cute. This is a simple book that is good for bedtime. What I didn’t like: There isn't really anything I didn't like, I just wish there was something more to it. Something to make it special. My conclusion: Overall, this is a cute book. I give Go to Sleep, Sheep! 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book free to review from BookLook.

"Just as Mama says good night, She hears a quiet call. ‘Maaa,’ the smallest sheepy says, ‘I love you most of all!’” states the near end of the children’s book, Go to Sleep, Sheep! ~ What ~ At twenty pages, this cut-out board book with sparkled words and moon on the front cover targets children ages two to five years old. With no scary scenes, it is a nice story about sheep making excuses as they get ready for bedtime. Full page color illustrations of cute animals cover the pages. Written in four-lines of rhyme with some complicated wording that covers two open pages, this short tale from Sunshine Farm has four lambs being told by their mother that it is time to head to the Bedtime Barn. They are not ready for settling down, asking instead for five more minutes to play or time to eat a snack, drink water, be read a story, keep the light on, or have a tickle fight. When their mama cuddles with them and they say their prayers, the littlest sheep tells her mother she loves her. In the end, all the barnyard animals are safe and snug as they fall asleep. ~Why ~ Having grandchildren, I like how this book is the type to cuddle up with them when they visit and it is time for bed. Through the rhyming, it offers ways the sheep try to stall the inevitable bedtime routine. I like how one of the sheep has glasses and another wears a bow. The sheep drawings are colorful and easy to understand, including bunnies, chickens, horses, pigs, goats, cows, and a cat. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not like books that mention God may not approve of this book, but He is mentioned only one time toward the ending. Due to the two- and three-syllable wording, it should be read out loud to beginner readers. ~ Wish ~ Since the mother does not respond at all to her young ones’ suggestions, it may promote a child using the same tactics to avoid going to bed. ~ Want ~ If you are looking for a bedtime reading book that is calm, this is a good selection, but it may give a young child ideas how to delay going to bed. Thanks to Book Look Bloggers for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
