Ten Sleepy Sheep

By Phyllis Root
Illustrated by Susan Gaber

"Root’s lilting verses soothe the ear. . . . An unusually fine addition to parents’ sleep inducing bag of tricks." — Booklist

Outside in the farmyard, ten lively lambs would rather play than go to sleep. Off they scamper; off they skip. But the sun is sinking, the stars are twinkling, sleepy eyes can’t stay open, and one by one, ten drowsy sheep drop off to sleep in a cozy country countdown. With rhythmic, lyrical language and pastoral scenes of lambs drifting off wherever they may, author and artist blend the perfect potion to ease even spirited little ones into sweet dreams.
