My Review
Go to Sleep! is a super cute children's book about a sheep who can't sleep. She tried everything to get herself to go to sleep, but does she succeed? Follow Tansey on her nighttime journey to discover whether or not she's able to get some rest.

I found the story to be really adorable and engaging. Tansey is extremely relatable, at least for me. I don't sleep all that much, and my three year old is very anti-sleep currently. He prefers to stay up and bounce around rather than go to bed. Too bad none of Tansey's methods help my kiddo sleep. lol 

If you're a parent, or you have young readers, I'd definitely recommend Go to Sleep! It's a great, fun read that's short and has beautiful illustrations. It's definitely a good bedtime story for the little ones.

I'd give it five very well-deserved stars

My Review
Sarah's Shadow is a children's book about a young girl named Sarah who is teased about her shadow. All of the other kids on the playground make fun and call her names, which upsets Sarah, and rightfully so.  She decides she no longer wants her shadow, but is that really the right choice? 

I found the story to be a good one. It's both endearing and has a great moral. It showcases the bullies discovering that maybe they weren't so nice after all, and that everyone is unique and special in their own way. It also showcases Sarah learning that she's perfect just the way she is, and that she doesn't need to change herself to appease her bullies. Mean kids will always find something to pick on others about, so the lesson here is, be happy with who you are. Love and appreciate who you are. 

If you're a parent, or have young readers, I'd definitely recommend Sarah's Shadow. The story can be a great teaching tool for both boys and girls. Plus, it has some amazing illustrations, and it's just a really good story overall.

I give it five stars.
