Simpson’s Sheep Won’t Go To Sleep by Bruce Arant

We discovered this bedtime story one night when my two granddaughters stayed for an overnight at Grandma’s. The story is adorable with a great read aloud flow to it. It was just perfect for two little girls that would rather stay up late and play with Grandpa.

They need a drink, they want a snack,
They have to “go”! they like to yack,
The ground’s too hard, the grass is wet,
They’ll settle down, but not quite yet.
