Tansy the sheep can’t go to sleep. She’s forgotten how to do it! But when she follows the barn owl’s advice and starts counting sheep, she realises that something is wrong … The award-winning bedtime story with a humorous twist that children will love!
Go To Sleep is animal themed funny and cute bedtime story about the little sheep Tansy who couldn’t go to sleep. In trying to sleep by following barn owl’s advice she found out something was wrong in the field. As the blurb said it had funny twist.
Tansy was nice little sheep who was cute, innocent, cared for others and tried to do something good. Barn own and Jack- the dog was also great in the story. Writing was captivating and easy for kids to understand. Storytelling was great that will catch kids’ attention. All illustrations were colorful and eyes catching specially all cute white fluffy sheep.
When I couldn’t sleep I didn’t count sheep but I remember my mom telling me to count stars when we slept outside under the sky in summer vacations now I read books if I can’t sleep. 😉 It was kind of funny when sheep was counting sheep in the story. Kids will find it amusing.
Overall, it was great bedtime story that parents would love to read with their kids.
