SIMPSON'S SHEEP WON'T GO TO SLEEP!

Farmer Simpson works all day.
He plants his corn, and beans, and hay.
His feet get tired, his nose gets red.
At night, he likes to go to bed.

But Simpson's sheep have other plans -- and sleep is not one of them! They think of every excuse to stay awake.

They need a drink. They want a snack.
They have to ''go!'' They like to yack.

Will poor Simpson ever find a way to lull his sheep to sleep? Illustrated with soft pastel drawings that are both silly and soothing, Simpson's Sheep Won't Go to Sleep! is a story for every parent who has put a child to bed -- and every child who has creatively resisted.

SIMPSON'S SHEEP JUST WANT TO SLEEP!

''These stubborn sheep,'' the farmer sighs,
''won't open up their sleepy eyes.
But I know how to wake this crowd.
I'll make some noise and make it loud.''


From pounding on pots and pans to playing a screechy violin, Farmer Simpson makes all sorts of commotion to wake up his flock of sleepy sheep, but nothing works! Then Farmer Simpson gets a brilliant idea -- he decides to bring home a puppy who will surely be able to wake the snoozing sheep with its loud barks. But the farmer is in for a surprise -- his sheep wake up, but not in ways he expected! Author and illustrator Bruce Arant presents a tender tale about the virtues of using a gentle nudge when friends won't budge.
