Time to Sleep Sheep the Sheep! by Mo Willems, is a recommended bed story for kids at Reading Kingdom. Melissa Young explains why:

What You Need to Know:

• The brilliant Mo Willems does it again! This is part of a new set of books for the youngest and tiniest reader.
• Now that we have established this is for the youngest of readers, my five year old ‘almost reader’ still enjoys it,
because the language is so simple and repetitive he could read it himself after one shared reading.
• For all those Pigeon and Knuffle Bunny fans out there, you will find cameos of both, sure to delight.


Cheerful Cat is back! In this story, Cat comes to find all of her friends, Sheep, Pig, Giraffe, Crab, Horse and Shark, and coaxes them into slumber. When Cat happens upon each friend, they are all in a different stage of the bedtime ritual. Sheep is reading, Giraffe is brushing his teeth, etc. Little readers will most enjoy Horse’s stage in the ritual – what youngster doesn’t love a little good, clean potty humor? But what happens when Cat gets to Owl? You can just imagine what Willems does with this bit of humor! Checkers anyone?

As with the other “Cat the Cat” books Willems has introduced, the story is simple, direct and repetitive. Perfect for a young toddler who can’t sit still very long and equally as perfect for a fledgling reader, who will be able to read it by him/herself very quickly.”
