Summary
When increasing numbers of sheep in a rainbow of colors appear in a man's bedroom as he tries to fall asleep, he must resort to more and more elaborate means of removing them. What do you do when you can't sleep? Count sheep in Spanish and English, of course! But what happens when those rascally sheep get a little too close for comfort? Well, if you're anything like the sleepy little hero in this clever tale, you might just tire yourself out trying to get rid of them!
Summary
When nighttime noises keep a young child awake, the little one tries counting ovejas, or sheep -- and ends up herding increasing numbers of variously colored sheep out the door. With appropriately repetitive text in both English and Spanish ("Cuatro ovejas rosas. Four pink sheep. / !Adios, ovejas rosas! Good-bye, pink sheep.") and swirly, colorful illustrations brimming with whimsy, Counting Ovejas is a cozy, delightful bedtime book as well as a good choice for kids just learning numbers and colors in Spanish. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
