In Can’t Sleep Without Sheep, by blogger/author/friend Susanna Leonard Hill, Ava counts a lot of sheep, which causes her fence-jumping sheep to tire of the job. They promise her they will find a replacement. But the pigs would rather eat and nap, the buffalo cause a stampede, and the hippos can’t quite make it over the fence. You’ll never guess what was wrong with the horse.
This book was a hilarious and ingenious addition to our bedtime repertoire. My son loves it!
