Looking for the perfect bedtime story? Peter Pauper Press is proud to announce the publication of Simpson’s Sheep Won’t Go to Sleep!, a terrific read aloud just right for little ones getting ready to be tucked in for the night:

Farmer Simpson works all day.
He plants his corn, and beans, and hay.
His feet get tired, his nose gets red.
At night, he likes to go to bed.

But Simpson’s sheep have other plans — and sleep is not one of them! They think of every excuse to stay awake.

They need a drink. They want a snack.
They have to ”go!” They like to yack.

Will poor Simpson ever find a way to lull his sheep to sleep? Illustrated with soft pastel drawings that are both silly and soothing, Simpson’s Sheep Won’t Go to Sleep! is a story for every parent who has put a child to bed — and every child who has creatively resisted.

The revered School Library Journal’s review sums the book up perfectly:  The rhyming text begs to be read aloud, and the stylized pictures perfectly capture the tired farmer and his sleep-resistant flock. ….. and the clutter-free illustrations are great for storytime or individual sharing. Parents will sympathize with Farmer Simpson, and children will totally understand where the sheep are coming from. Great fun for everyone.”

On behalf of Peter Pauper Press, I am pleased to offer one reader a wonderful giveaway just right for snuggling up with a bedtime story. The giveaway consists of one copy of Simpson’s Sheep Won’t Go to Sleep and a 50″ x 60″ reversible micropsherpa blanket (ARV $97).

  1. My grandson stalls by telling us he has to put all of his toys and stuffed animals night night first before he can get in bed.

  2. my one was always "too old" to do things he didn't want to do when he was 2. So when he was told bed time he would say "I am just too old to go to bed"

  3. One of my daughters stayed up all night because she was worried about the Easter Bunny coming

  4. I can't go to bed my leg hurts, I just went to bed yesterday, you get to stay up, my brothers get to stay up, if I go to sleep I'll miss it…the list is endless.

  5. I don't think my kids have ever really come up with anything creative or original to delay sleep, usually they are really good about going to bed.

  6. This looks really cute. We talk about counting sheep at bedtime, so I know my kids would love a book about sheep. My oldest will definitely want to know what sheep count when they can't sleep.

  7. Probably the funniest time is him rubbing his eyes and saying but I'm not tired. He does this often. Its quite funny. He is only four so he hasn't come up with any crazy ones yet.

  8. My daughter would tell me that the scarey monsters would get her if she closed her eyes

  9. my son isn't old enough for excuses just yet…he just goes to bed when it's time. 🙂

  10. They always have to pee and get water. Then they sneak out and watch tv in the hall. They are so quiet! I put a mirror towards the hallway so when ever I see movement I tell them to go to bed.

  11. my nephew told me he had to stay up to see the birds in the morning and he did i fell a sleep and he was still up

  12. oh man… with 4 kids i have heard every excuse in the book…. monsters, santa (in august!!), protecting the dog, etc. 🙂

  13. My daughter said there was a green glowing hand under her bed, so of course she couldn't go to sleep.

  14. My son once told me his dragon keeps telling him stories, that's why he can't go to sleep.

  15. My sons best so far is that he has to wait up to thank Santa for his Christmas presents because it's rude not to say thank you.


  16. My son told me once that he couldn't go to sleep because he don't remember how to go to sleep!

  17. One time my son "slept walked" and he poured himself a glass of tea and got cereal and just plopped himself in front of the TV in the living room. Thank you

  18. I've heard lots of excuses, but couldn't help but laugh when one said he couldn't go to bed because he had to do lots of homework, he was in 1st grade!

  19. I'm thirsty, I have to go to the bathroom, I really need to read another book so I can learn for school…

  20. It's not very creative, but I heard I forgot I had school work to do, a lot when they were little, just before bedtime.

  21. My daughter would always say that her doll refused to sleep and was keeping her awake.

  22. Thanks for the giveaway…I remember once that my daughter insisted she had to get up after we had tucked her into bed for the night, so that she could sing a song to our dog, Maxine.

  23. We haven't ever had any creative excuses. Luckily everyone likes to get their sleep.

  24. My boys will say they are scared if they don't want to go to bed. They know that will always get me to go cuddle them.

  25. My daughter has tons of excuses thirsty needs to talk scared wrong blanket you name it 🙂
