I'm delighted to be sharing my review for Go To Sleep by Marion Adams as part of the blog tour today. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
Tansy the sheep can’t go to sleep. She’s forgotten how to do it! But when she follows the barn owl’s advice and starts counting sheep, she realises that something is wrong … The award-winning bedtime story with a humorous twist that children will love!

A book that talks about sleep and encourages sleep will always be a hit with me, my children have never been the best at sleeping especially my little boy. So it is always lovely to share a book with them on that subject.
There is a lovely style of humour within the story that both little ones and adults reading will love. Tansy the sheep manages to get herself in a bit of a muddle in her quest to fall asleep! We all shared a giggle or two at the end it was a lovely sweet ending that really made us smile.
The illustrations are eye catching and both my son and daughter were pointing things out to me as I was reading. So it was lovely to see them interacting with the story in this way. The length of the book was perfect and kept both of my children engaged throughout.
Funny and sweet, Go To Sleep is a perfect bedtime story!
Five stars from me!

Marion Adams has been writing for as long as she can remember, usually for fun and sometimes for money as well. She started her career as an in-house copywriter with a publisher and now works as a freelance proofreader and editor. It’s her dream job because she’s paid to read all day (and eat dark chocolate). Over the years, she’s written all kinds of things for both adults and children, some serious and some less so, with published work including magazine stories, articles, poems, plays and non-fiction books.
Marion lives in Devon, UK, and when she’s not reading or writing (or eating dark chocolate), she loves going for walks on the wild moors where her picture book Go To Sleep! is set.
