There’s a jingle contest going on at the wonderful Susanna Leonard Hill’s blog, in honor of her picture book, Can’t Sleep Without Sheep coming out as an e-book this week. You can check the book out here if you are not familiar with it. It’s a great story about a little girl, Ava, who counts sheep at bedtime, but she takes so long to fall asleep that they sheep grow exhausted from jumping over the fence and they quit. Other animals- cows, chickens, pigs, flamingos, horses, penguins…- stand in for the sheep, but chaos ensues. It’s a terrific story with adorable illustrations by Mike Wohnoutka.
Here is my little audio jingle, sung to the tune of the Beverly Hillbillies theme song. I had a video, but the file was too large to upload. I need to look into that. In the meantime here is the audio:
And be sure to hop on over to Susanna’s blog to check out the other entries. There are some great ones!
