This new bedtime story makes getting ready for bed a bit more fun. Three little ones are tucked into bed and instead of the ordinary sheep that they might be counting, they see sheep that are dancing, tapping, and twirling their way into dreamland.

With a rhyming scheme and counting, kids will be lulled to sleep by the rhythm of the story. Just when you think the counting of sheep is done, the sheep liven up the beat and the counting starts all over again until there are tired sheep and little ones.

The illustrations are soft and show fluffy sheep in blue, pink, and purple tones that are soothing for bedtime reading. Your child will soon be counting to ten and drifting off to sleep along with the fluffy, dancing sheep.

Kenda Henthorn is originally from Pennsylvania and grew up behind the scenes on her parents’ western movie sets. Those dramas fueled her dreams since she was a kid on a pony. She works in the aviation industry now so it’s no surprise that her writing inspirations and aspirations are sky-high, too! Kenda resides in Oklahoma now and when the winds aren’t sweeping down the plains, she enjoys flying, kayaking, and riding horses or her motorcycle. (Vroom-vroom!) She has served as a Regional Coordinator for the Oklahoma SCBWI and a Best in Rhyme Award committee member and judge. Check out her website, HERE.

Lauren Gallegos earned her BFA in illustration from California State University, Fullerton, where she discovered she loves to create worlds to escape into and characters we want to know and understand. She is continually illustrating with the desire to see how her work will impact the young minds of our future. Lauren loves biking in the mountains of Southern California, where she lives with her husband and two littles. Check out her website, HERE.
