Praise For Sheep Go to Sleep (lap board book) (Sheep in a Jeep)…
—School Library Journal
"The combination of formula and subject is such a natural it's a wonder Shaw and Apple waited this long to put them together. A beguiling bedtime book and a nice choice for just before nap time."
"The endearing colored-pencil illustrations portray the animals' emotions with clarity and wit...this amiable picture book is just right for bedtime reading."
"Apple's soft colored-pencil illustrations set a peaceful pastoral scene, while the soothing assonant sounds of the text ask young listeners to, well, begin, counting their own sheep."
