Baa, Baa Tap Sheep

We rated this book:


It’s time for bed and the toddlers need a little something to help them fall asleep. Counting sheep is a tried and true method, right? This sweet book will kind of turn that idea on its head with sheep that feel the need to dance through the night. They leap, they glide, they prance and slide. Each cute little lamb has a number to help sleepy children keep track of the twirling, whirling, high-kicking line. They waltz, they tango, they softly sway until the toddlers doze off, and then the sheep bust out some moves—clogging, clomping, stomping, jitterbugging, jumping to jive, but soon slow down and everyone is soon asleep.

Kenda Henthorn has written a clever, funny, and very sweet story filled with perfect rhythm and rhyme. The situations are smart and make for a great story on more than one level—a counting story, a bedtime story, a word-building story, and more. The illustrations by Lauren Gallegos are the perfect complement to the story. The colors are soft and will invite sleepiness. The characters are cute and will keep little eyes engaged. This book will become a fast favorite. Don’t miss it.
