Ten Sheep to Sleep, by Nidhi Kamra, is a counting tale with a twist. Ten sheep from next door aren’t needed anymore and hope that young Sammy Jo will count them as well as the ten sheep she already counts before she goes to sleep. Sammy Jo has many alternate suggestions, but it turns out her brother, dad and mother already count other things before falling asleep. However, twenty sheep are too busy and disruptive for Sammy Jo…what ever will she do? She solves the problem by counting in twos.
A fun take on counting sheep to sleep, showing many other possible items to count! Eugene Ruble’s illustrations are choc full of imagination – important, as so many people count so many different things in order to drift off.
Ten Sheep to Sleep is a great counting book that teaches kids about counting pairs—and more than just sheep.
Please note: I reviewed a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
