Mary Had A Sleepy Sheep by Julia Dweck

Hi Folks
Welcome back to the Kid Lit Blog Hop
Today I am delighted to bring to you another wonderful book by Julia Dweck

Description from Amazon:
"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?
Young readers will laugh along at Mary’s zany attempts, as she tries everything from spicy-hot fiestas to water fights. The humor is fast and fun in this easy to read rhyming adventure.

My Review:

Poor Mary has a sleepy sheep, how ever will she keep him awake.
She buys a book, ( clever girl) with ideas to wake her slumbersome sheep.
Mary tries every imaginative way in the book, like dancing shoes, bright lights, a water hose, spicy food, funny shows, freezing cold, even a French horn. Her sheep finds a every way to doze, siesta and snooze his way through each and every one.
Mary's last resort is pure genius, and she manages to finally keep her sleepy sheep awake. Somehow she has bitten off more than she can chew, with a very naughty non sleepy sheep. Another delightful rhyming read that will have your kids laughing along with Mary and her very mischievous sheep.
The illustrations are wonderful, especially the hidden mouse that had me chuckling at each turn of the page.
I thoroughly recommend for children aged 3-6
