When nighttime noises keep a young child awake, the little one tries counting ovejas
, or sheep -- and ends up herding increasing numbers of variously colored sheep out the door. With appropriately repetitive text in both English and Spanish ("Cuatro ovejas rosas.
Four pink sheep. / !Adios, ovejas rosas!
Good-bye, pink sheep.") and swirly, colorful illustrations brimming with whimsy, Counting Ovejas
is a cozy, delightful bedtime book as well as a good choice for kids just learning numbers and colors in Spanish.
