Go to Sleep Sheep

Hi everyone!  Today we are joining It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? The kiddy lit version hosted by Teacher Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.

*Disclosure: I received this book for free as part of The Book Look Bloggers book review program. I am not required to write a positive review, all opinions are my own.

I was a little reluctant to read Go to Sleep Sheep to my great-niece because her parents are having trouble getting her to go to sleep. I thought this was going to give her ideas to extend her time awake like needing a snack and wanting to play. So far, it has not caused a problem and she enjoyed the story.

Go to Sleep Sheep by Thomas Nelson and Illustrated by Sydney Hanson is an adorable board book with the cutest illustrations. I like how it introduces thankfulness and prayer to young children. The sheep bow their heads and say their prayers, ” God, thank You for this day! ”

This book is for young children, ages 2-5. It just touches on being thankful and saying a prayer. Hopefully, it will get children asking about these things and wanting to learn more. One is never too young to be thankful.

It makes a great bedtime story for kids and kitties.

  1. This sounds like such a wonderful book to read to little children. I adore the message it portrays. I don’t have children of my own, but all throughout high school and college I worked as a baby-sitter. One of the little girls I babysit regularly was not a good sleeper. Sometimes reading books to her would help, and I wish she had had books like this in her little library. Thank you for sharing this with us!

  2. I agree that one is never to young to be thankful. Kids need to be taught about all the wonderful things around them to be thankful for.

    Have a fabulous day. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  4. My Mom read to me, I read to my daughter , and my daughter reads to her daughter. We daughters all parlayed being read to into becoming strong readers ourselves. There is no substitute!

  5. I tend to grab up every “good night” book I can for my children. My older four are now old enough to calm down and go to sleep, but my 4 year old still sometimes struggles. This one sounds like a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
