No Sleep for the Sheep by Karen Beaumont - ADVISABLE

Beaumont, Karen. No Sleep for the Sheep! Illustrated by Jackie Urbanovic. Harcourt Children’s Books, 2011. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. All sheep wants to do is sleep in the big red barn on the farm. Unfortunately, there are lots of other noisy animals that keep waking sheep up with their oinkin’ and their neighin’. One by one sheep takes the animals into the barn and tells them not to peep. The repetition of phrases and the delightful rhythm of the rhyme make this book a natural read aloud pick. The illustrations are expressive and entertaining. A great choice for a story-time. Pre-K, EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
