Simpson's Sheep Book and Microsherpa Blanket Giveaway (ends 01/25)

I read a LOT of children's books to my two younger children. Braeden is 8, but due to his autism he still enjoys nursery rhymes and picture books with more concrete storylines. And Taylor, being 9 months old, likes anything that can be read in a sing-song voice with lots of bright pictures for him to look at. Since Taylor likes to "help" turn the pages, I tend to memorize his favorite stories so I can keep going with the story even when he flips to a different page. And stories with rhyming are both fun for him and easier to memorize (we're big Dr. Seuss fans in this house!)

Simpson's Sheep Won't Go to Sleep is one of those books with a great rhyming pattern and a fun little story that parents will be able to relate to. If you'd like to win a copy for yourself, along with a comfy 50x60 reversible microsherpa blanket (a total value of $97!) then keep reading and enter using the Rafflecopter below!
Welcome to the Simpson's Sheep Won't Go to Sleep Book & Blanket Giveaway!
I love a good bedtime story. When I had the opportunity to review the book Simpson's Sheep Won't Go to Sleep I couldn't wait. It sounded just perfect to share with my 4 year old at bedtime. Here is the scoop.... 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 Wont Go to Sleep! is a story for every parent who has put a child to bed -- and every child who has creatively resisted. This book was perfect to read to my daughter. Like so many children, she is the master of bedtime excuses. Bedtime can be quite a process as we go down the line of all the "musts" before she can give into sleep (drink. song. story. kiss. another kiss....the list goes on. And on!). We had quite a chuckle about the antics of Simpson's sheep. The book was lovely to read with nice, rolling, rhyming words and gentle and soft illustrations. This book is a new favorite bedtime book and one that will have some serious staying power because it has given me a new way to get my daughter to sleep! I won't give away the ending but I can tell you that my daughter now loves to pretend she is one of Simpson's Sheep and I get her to sleep the way he tends to his flock. Whatever works is my motto!
