Okay, I read a LOT of picture books It s an occupational hazard I rarely add them to my Goodreads list because I feel like it would unfairly influence my must read at least 52 books per year list However, this is the week of my RTMLA Bedtime storytime, and I picked this book And I M IN LOVE It worked so well as a read aloud The kids didn t wiggle, the parents giggled, and everyone liked helping me count the sheep The drawings are detailed and funny and interesting The kids could see the main action, but I was able to ask them a lot of questions about the details of the pictures They laughed at the frog pillow, too and liked pointing out the frog in the other illustrations Excellent addition to the storytime I strayed from the RTMLA literacy book, but no one likes to be tied to that thing anyway I HATED the darned Thai Lullaby book anyway This is much better.

The story line is nice, but the illustrations are superb Title Russell the SheepAuthor Rob ScottonIllustrator N AGenre Counting Book, Picture Book,Theme s Sleep, Bedtime, Sheep Animals, Counting,Opening line sentence Russell the Sheep lived in Frogsbottom Field.Brief Book Summary Russell the Sheep is having trouble getting to sleep one night, blaming everything from being too hot or cold to needing a frog for a pillow Eventually, Russell decides to try counting his toes to the millions of stars and still cannot fall asleep Ultimately, Russell decides to count sheep, which finally allows him to fall into a deep slumber.Professional Recommendation Review 1 Reviewer name N A, Horn Book Guide 4 PS After Russell the sheep tries everything to find sleep, he counts things body parts, stars, and, finally, sheep Only after he counts himself does he nod off The story doesn t amount to much, but the turquoise tinted illustrations, which feature a big eyed protagonist who wouldn t be out of place in a Wallace Gromit cartoon, make that easy to overlook Recommendation Review 2 Susie Wilde, Children s Literature, CLCD This wound up sheep can not find his way to sleep The dark scares him in a quiet meadow, his wool overheats him Neither exercise, a pillow, nor change of location helps Only after counting six hundred million billion and ten stars does the weary lambkin decide to count sheep That does the trick When the others rise, Russell still sleeps soundly Simple words, soft blue hues, and comical illustrations ease pre sleep tension to Two Professional Reviews While neither review seems too fond of or too against the book, I found it to be quite enjoyable The Horn Books review says the story doesn t amount to much , and while it is a simple story, the main aspect of this book is that it is a counting book, so I don t feel as though the story needs to be much deeper I agree with the Susie Wilde s review on the book easing pre sleep tension, making the book quite relatable as everyone has at some point struggled to fall asleep Evaluation of Literary Elements With the simplicity of this book, it is very believable and relatable for readers Russell s struggle is clear from the beginning, moves at a good pace, and ends with a satisfying conclusion Russell is seen all over the field the book is set in, and although the story focuses on Russell, we see images of other animals that make his world fleshed out Consideration of Instructional Application While I enjoyed reading this book quite a bit, I believe it has place as a bedtime story than in a classroom In a classroom, this story would be ideal for younger kids so that the counting Russell does at the end could be the educational focus If there was a lesson involving the topic of sleep this would be a good book to use, and it could be expanded upon by having children share their own experiences with sleeping and what helps them to fall asleep.
