  22.

  28. What a cute story It would be perfect at bed time with the little ones It s a darling story of a little girl who can t fall asleep while counting sheep And the sheep are exhausted from all the jumping they keep doing, so they try to find replacementsd then the fun begins


  29. I liked this book because it was very colorful and keep me engaged I was always wondering what animal Ava was going to count next I would use this book as a science connection, by discussing the animals and why some had trouble getting over the fence.
