Review: Can’t Sleep Without Sheep by Susanna Leonard Hill

Can’t Sleep Without Sheep

by Susanna Leonard Hill

Illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka

Whenever Ava can’t sleep, she counts sheep. But Ava takes so long to fall asleep, it’s the sheep who are getting tired – until, finally, they quit!

The sleepy sheep promise to find a replacement that Ava can rely on but it might not be as easy as they think…

With irresistibly adorable art, this delightful take on a familiar sleep tactic is sure to become a bedtime favourite.

This is an absolutely gorgeous story, the illustrations perfectly capture the essence of the story, the animals are colourful, cheeky and true to their nature.

This is a picture book that any child would find hard to resist, they will find the development of the story engaging. The mayhem that occurs as the sheep try different animals for the job of jumping fences will be sure to delight and entertain. The sheep get so frustrated looking for a replacement that they end up with a menagerie bottle necked at the fence, until they all realise that indeed sheep are the best animals to count at night.

Both myself and my children adore this book, and it has already made it into out revolving pile of night time reads.
