"The story is illustrated with Apple's signature colored-pencil
drawings; they are sweet and soft, just right for bedtime...This
book will be a favorite for any reluctant sleepyheads"
--School Library Journal
"The combination of formula and subject is such a natural it's a
wonder Shaw and Apple waited this long to put them together. A
beguiling bedtime book and a nice choice for just before nap
--Kirkus "The endearing colored-pencil illustrations portray the animals' emotions with clarity and wit...this amiable picture book is just right for bedtime reading."
--Booklist "Apple's soft colored-pencil illustrations set a peaceful pastoral scene, while the soothing assonant sounds of the text ask young listeners to, well, begin, counting their own sheep."
