Baa! A Sheep Jingle


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 hereΒ 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 Β 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:

Can’t Sleep Without Sheep Jingle

And be sure to hop on over to Susanna’s blogΒ to check out the other entries. There are some great ones!

  1. Great job, Iza! Isn’t it just too much fun…making a jingle about sheep? I think your baaaaa maybe the best baaaaa yet!

    Too bad your video wouldn’t upload. I usually send mine to YouTube and then embed them in the post.

    πŸ™ – nothing happens when I click.

      Hmmm… Julie, I don’t know what to tell you. It just worked for Penny and it’s working on my end. It opens up in another page.Let’s see if others have an issue and maybe someone can help us out. I am not too techy… In any case, thanks for stopping by!

  3. Iza Trapani says:

    That’s probably it! It’s an MP4 ( I have an apple computer) and needs to be an MP3 for PCs . I know there’s a way to convert but I have yet to figure it out… Thanks for letting me know, Penny!

  4. I LOVE it, Iza! I can’t believe you picked the same tune I did – truly, great minds think alike! – although yours is sung WAY better! And where did you learn to speak Sheep? Your accent is impressive! I felt like I was in the sheep fold! Thanks for joining in the fun! πŸ™‚

    • Iza Trapani says:

      Thanks, Susanna! Ooh, I can’t wait to hear your version! Yes, great minds think alike- that plus there’s no such thing as an original idea!

  5. Did I just see Little Bo Peep go running past?

    Ewe are a lovely singer Iza! I don’t need video – I can close my eyes and envision you out in the sheep pasture!

  6. Aw, nothing happens for me, either, and I have a Mac! Boo hoo! Or should I say Baa-Haa!

    I wanna hear you sing!!!

    • Ooh, I just right clicked and chose “save link as” and downloaded it to my desktop! It worked! I love it!

      Ewe are RAAAAAD, Iza. I’m so glad I finally herd you. πŸ™‚

      • Iza Trapani says:

        Haa haa! I was feeling sheepish for posting an audio clip that is not supported by PCs. So glad you herd it and liked it. I want to hear EWE next! Thanks, Renee πŸ™‚

  7. You and Sus picked the BEST music to go with it, Bff. This was tons of fun to hear. Your voice is beautiful! But I really was sad that I could not see you too. I saw you in my head though. Hahaha. Love ewe!!!!

    (I did what Renee did.) Glad she beat me over here. Thanks Renee! BFF, excellent job. You’re MY pick!

    • Iza Trapani says:

      Thank you BBF! The audio is better than the video. Sometimes I am a little baaashful in front of the camera πŸ™‚ Love and hugs to you!

  8. Graaayt Jingle Ms. Trapani! πŸ˜€

  9. This was lovely, Iza! You have a beautiful voice…very soothing…if you had been there, I’m sure Ava would not have had to count sheep to fall asleep. And what fun that you and Susanna picked the same tune…they do say great minds think alike. πŸ™‚

    • Iza Trapani says:

      Vivian, what a nice thing to say! Thank you so much!And I am looking forward to hearing Susanna’s!

  10. Dana Carey says:

    BAA- EWE-tiful, Iza!

  11. Iza, I can’t open it either. Wished I could listen.

    • Iza Trapani says:

      I am sorry you can’t open it, Patricia. Do you have a PC or Mac? Renee dragged it out into her desktop and then it worked. πŸ™

  12. You did a fabulous job, Iza. πŸ™‚

  13. Loved it, just loved it….. what a beautiful voice you have!
