Ten Sleepy Sheep is an adorable board book set on a farm in the Australian bush.
Gently counting animals who are ready for bed down from ten sheep to one snuggly, sleepy joey, this new book from Renée Treml is as sweet as they come. Each spread features a group of gorgeous, very sleepy animals to count, including puppies, foals, calves, ducklings, lizards and more.
I adore the Australian farm themed illustrations, featuring delicately drawn line art of flora and fauna with soft pastel background colours, they set a dreamy sense of open space and rich night skies.
Ten Sleepy Sheep is perfect for babies and toddlers learning about counting, animals, farms, Australia and of course those who are or should be sleepy. With durable board pages, it’s strong and ready for repeated use by tiny hands.
Renée Treml is an Australian author and illustrator, some of her other books include Roo Knows Blue, Sleep Tight, Platypup, and The Great Garden Mystery.
