A bedtime story that teaches counting by twos, "Ten Sheep to Sleep" presents young readers with an array of obstacles to sleep that can be calmed by counting. Appealing to readers between the ages of 5 and 8, "Ten Sheep to Sleep" is filled with 10 zany rainbow striped sheep zipping by on skateboards, while dreamer Sammy Jo counts them. One night Sammy Jo noticed 10 polka dotted sheep in addition to her 10 striped sheep on skateboards. The polka dotted sheep are sadly crying because Mary, their owner, does not need them any more and they have no place to go. Sammy Jo suggest her little brother might need sheep to help him sleep, but Wooly, head polka dotted sheep, reported that he preferred to count superheroes. When Sammy Jo suggested her mom, Wooly said that she counted handbags to sleep. her dad counted sports cars. meantime Sammy Jo was overwhelmed with 20 messy, noisy, squabbling sheep who doodled on her books and walls. Finally Sammy Jo jumped out of bed and straightened up her room, organizing the sheep in pairs of one striped sheep with one polka dotted sheep, lining them up. Sammy Jo counts the sheep by twos, getting 10 pairs of sheep, exactly the right number to help her find Dreamland doorway and fall fast asleep. The incredible, chaotic and colorful images of all the sheep plus superheroes, handbags, and race cars make "Ten Sheep to Sleep" a very funny adventurous invitation to bedtime.
