When you can't fall asleep
Then try counting sheep!
But what do you do if the sheep are already asleep? "New York Times" best-selling author Laura Numeroff, has crafted the perfect lullaby in which a small child imagines she encounters many cuddly animal families, only to find that they, too, are snuggled fast asleep! Lovely, soothing watercolors by award-winning and critically acclaimed illustrator David McPhail capture the dreaminess of bedtime.
Laura Numeroff and David McPhail, two icons in the world of children's books, make an invincible team with their first collaboration, "When Sheep Sleep." Children will reach for this new classic again and again as the warm, gentle illustrations and calming rhyme lull them to sleep.
