" This is a nice nightime counting book. The story is sweet and the illustrations are cute. Birth + " said.

" Poetic and has gorgeous illustrations. My 17-mo old loves the dog, the bees, and the owls. I don't mind reading it a few times in a row. " said.

" Sweet and gentle countdown as ten sheep fall asleep...delicately illustrated and peaceful bedtime story. " said.

" A rhyme prepares the reader for the next number in this count down from 10 sleep book. It also introduces language to lots of animal activities as things wind down for the night. Good story to read slowly for bedtime. " said.

" My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library last week. This book is an adorable counting-backwards-in-rhyme-from-ten book. The rhyming is well done, and the illustrations are flat-out endearing, especially the sleeping sheep. " said.

"I am absolutely delighted with some of the counting books that I am finding. So far this is my favorite. Combining my childhood favorite stuffed animals of lambs/sheep with counting, rhymes, new animal vocabulary and a getting ready to sleep book is really great. The pictures are colorful and calm and AppleBlossom enjoys pointing at everything and turning the pages. Much in the way that I enjoyed Counting Christmas, I enjoyed Ten Sleepy Sheep even more.

Candlewick Press books are a delight so far for our shelves and I cannot wait to find more of their books.

*Thanks to Candlewick Press for providing a copy for review.*

"Nice counting down story.
It starts with 10 and counts down to 1.

On each page, we have the number, the number word (in the rhyming text on the page), and the appropriate number of sheep (in a farm scene that reflects the text).
At the end, the mama sheep counts one sheep in each of the locations (so, basically saying 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=10).

There are lots of details on the pages. For example, each sheep has a different colored ribbon on. You can follow one sheep from the beginning until she falls asleep.

I have quibbles with the illustrations on two pages. On one, the sheep are described as "ambling" and they look more like they're gamboling. On another, the sheep are described as "loping" and they look more like they're walking or strolling.

This works well for both counting and bedtime.
