    "The story is illustrated with Apple’s signature colored-pencil drawings; they are sweet and soft, just right for bedtime...This book will be a favorite for any reluctant sleepyheads" 

    —School Library Journal 


    "The combination of formula and subject is such a natural it's a wonder Shaw and Apple waited this long to put them together. A beguiling bedtime book and a nice choice for just before nap time." 



    "The endearing colored-pencil illustrations portray the animals' emotions with clarity and wit...this amiable picture book is just right for bedtime reading." 



    "Apple's soft colored-pencil illustrations set a peaceful pastoral scene, while the soothing assonant sounds of the text ask young listeners to, well, begin, counting their own sheep." 

    —Horn Book Magazine
