I was too scared to go back to sleep,
So I began to count some sheep!
A child's fears on a dark and stormy night are quickly doused by the antics of a flock of very unusual sheep. Smell sheep, sweet sheep, messy sheep, and neat sheep frolic through the night with sheep with buttons and sheep with zippers. But, what is behind those woolly sheep zippers?
Shivering Sheep also includes flash cards that can be used to practice vocabulary and extend the story.
