Counting Sheep: A Farmyard Counting Book

By Michelle Robinson

Illustrated by Nikki Dyson

Down on the farm, it’s time to sleep. So sheepdog, Sam, rounds up the sheep…

Everyone knows that counting sheep will send you straight to sleep but what happens when the sheep won’t go to sleep? And what if they don’t know how to count, either?! Sheepdog, Sam, is on the case and he tries everything he can to lull them off to dreamland. But, before long, the whole farm is awake and noisier than ever... An alternative bedtime story full of farmyard sounds and counting chaos sure to make little ones laugh and parents sigh in sympathy.
