by Bea Shepherd • Illustrated by Sharon Harmer
Need to get a child to sleep? Why not have them count some sheep? Lambies in Jammies is both a go-to-sleep book and a counting book. Sharon Harmer’s delightful illustrations of lambs in pajamas combined with the whimsical rhymed text offers a wonderful way to help a child settle down and go to sleep.
Lambies in Jammies are cute baby sheep
Children who count them will soon fall asleep
There’s one in the meadow
And two on the hill
Three by the lakeside, so quiet and still
Four lie on flowers, a beautiful nest
While five find a haystack, upon which to rest
Six sleep in hammocks, that hang from the trees
They swing back and forth, in the cool evening breeze
Seven lambs curl up by the light of the moon
Eight lambs doze off, to a lullaby tune . . .
