Booklist - 01/01/2023 Sleepy Sheepy is a little lamb, but bedtime isn’t easy in the Sheepy household. It’s dark outside when Pa and Ma Sheepy inform Sleepy and their two baby lambkins that it’s time for bed. But Sleepy lets his parents know he’s not ready by bouncing on a chair, riding his skateboard, and singing into a microphone. Pa gives him a ride upstairs. Though his eyelids are drooping, he is “WIRED and absolutely NOT TIRED.” He escapes to the kitchen for a snack, but suddenly his eyelids droop, his shoulders stoop, and he admits to being “a little bit tired.” Back upstairs, his exhausted parents tuck him into bed, and soon Sleepy Sheepy is “fast asleepy.” While the text is not written in regular, metered verses, the many rhyming phrases make this picture book particularly fun for reading aloud. In Oswald’s digital illustrations, the characters are lovable, fluffy sheep, and it’s clear that Sleepy is as tired as his parents but fueled by sheer determination. A playful picture book that’s enjoyable to read, reread, and quote. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
