Summer Reading Saturdays! The 108th Sheep

by Ayano Imai
5 stars!

This large picture book is utterly adorable!

When Emma can't sleep, she decides to count sheep, sure she'll be asleep before she gets to 11.  Imagine her surprisewhen she gets to 107 and is still awake.

But where is 108?

Such a cute storyline and fabulous illustrations-- I think we probably need to buy this one. 

Boo really enjoyed the story (we had an interesting conversation about "bleated" vs "bleeded" lol).  Mister lost interest, but really, he was sick so his opinion doesn't count!

Definitely recommended-- I'd say ages 2-7 or 8 or something.... :)
