“Young Mary had a little lamb.
His name was Sheppard sheep,
And everywhere that Mary went
That sheep was sure to sleep.”
This is not your average Mother Goose nursery rhyme. In this hilarious parody, poor Mary has one very sleepy, slumbering, snoozing sheep named Sheppard and Mary’s mom is not happy. Can Mary can keep her sleepy sheep awake?
This is another treasure from author Julia Dweck! We have fallen in love with her stories and her storytelling here. This one was especially cute because if there is one thing my boys don’t do well, it’s sleep. They got the biggest laugh out of the fact that Sheppard sheep WANTED to sleep ALL the time! My boys love the rhyming, sing song cadence of the story, and the pictures are so colorful and cute! There are some really great activities and resources at the end of the book. There are coloring sheets and the original Mary Had A Little Lamb nursery rhyme. This is another big 5/5 for this author and book!
Mary Had A Sleepy Sheep goes live on Amazon on 9/5/2013! Until then you can pre-order!
