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!

In lyrical rhyme, a mother advises her restless child "Just close your eyes, and look for sheep. Then count them and you'll fall asleep." But instead of sheep, the child sees a variety of barnyard and wild animals in funny poses like an itchy cow and a smiling, fat hippo. The sheep finally appear and the child falls asleep counting up to ten and wishing for a big kangaroo.From the Back Cover:
