“Shapely Sleepy Sheep” is a board book in the Sleepy Sheep series that teaches ten different shapes through a series of rhymes. The book has a CD accompanying it which reads the story to your child and has a “Baaaa” sound effect when it is time to turn the page.
Cayden: “Why is that other guy opening Lulubelle’s present? It is not his birthday so he shouldn’t be opening it!”
Cayden: “You bang on the triangle with that triangle banger and it makes music.”
Cayden: “Moons are really circles and not crescents. I like moons better that are circles.”
Cayden: “Why does he like painting arrows?”
Cayden: “A bed is a rectangle, like a couch is a rectangle too.”
Cayden: My favorite page was where he was painting arrows because I like to paint! Let’s go through the book and name all of the shapes again! I will teach you them Max!”
“Shapely Sleepy Sheep” is a fun book to teach or reinforce knowledge of shapes. Like the other Sleepy Sheep books this one also has a lot of fun rhymes and colorful illustrations. The CD is great as well as even a young child can follow along with the story and know when to turn the page when they hear the “Baaaa” sound. We highly recommend this book and all of the other books in the series!
