What do you count when the sheep are asleep? This story takes you to different groups of animals you could choose to count if the sheep are asleep--including rabbits in hutches.

The illustrations in this book are drawn by David McPhail. They have a warm and cozy feeling and yet contain plenty of color.

In this story there is no counting unless you count the animals with your child. The story is not particularly about sheep either. A little girl and her teddy bear go from one group of animals to another seeing that they are asleep. One advantage to this story is it is of a short length which is good for bedtimes with the littlest ones. The rhyming is very bland and there are only so many words that can possibly rhyme with sheep and asleep. But if you read this story more than once, you could make up some of your own words. I would not recommend this book for other than bedtime and I would recommend it for ages 3-6.
