“Colorful Sleepy Sheep” is a board book in the Sleepy Sheep series which explores ten different colors through fun rhymes.  The book also has a CD enclosed that reads the story to your child. 

Cayden:  “I like these sheep books mom!”

Cayden:  “She’s coloring!”

Max:  “Color! Color!  Crayon!”

Cayden: “I have crayons.”

Max:  “Blue!”

Cayden:  “Look Max!  He has a big banana on his head!”  (followed by hysterical laughter)

Cayden:  “What’s chartreuse?  Isn’t that color supposed to be green?”

Parent’s comments:
“Colorful Sleepy Sheep” is another great Sleepy Sheep bedtime story.  Cayden really enjoyed going through the book trying to teach Max colors.  The only thing that was confusing to Cayden was the inclusion of the color chartreuse as this is not a commonly used color in children’s books.  The CD that accompanies is wonderful and even a preschooler can sit and go through the book on his own as the CD has a “Baaaa” sound every time it is time to turn the page.  This is an excellent book and we highly recommend it!
