This is Russell. Sometimes Russell is just a little bit out of step with the rest of the flock. All the sheep are falling asleep — except Russell. What’s a sheep to do? Russell tries everything … until, at last, he falls asleep.
This is such a great book! The illustrations are hilarious (be sure to spot the frog on every page!) and I love how they tell at least half the story. The story is a great length for a board book—a little more meat than your couple word per page board book but you can still read it fast enough that munchkins don’t get bored before you’re ready to turn the page.
A very fun story about a sheep trying to go to sleep! I love the humor in this book, and think it’s so fun for bedtime. This book has a great story and the illustrations are dreamy!
