Counting Ovejas
A Spanish-English Picture Book by Sarah Weeks
Art by David Diaz

One night a boy is unable to sleep. He tries counting sheep. Una oveja blanca. One white sheep. Dos ovejas marrones. / Two brown sheep. But the sheep keep coming! How will he get any sleep when he is trying to get the sheep out of his room? Will his work in trying to get the sheep out finally put him to sleep?

You will love learning counting words and other words in Spanish. To be sure you pronounce them right, the author puts a pronunciation guide under the Spanish words!

Be careful! Don't drive while you read this story. It just may put you to sleep. It's a great bedtime story.

From the talented duo of Sarah Weeks and Caldecott Medalist David Diaz, Counting Ovejas is the perfect way to say good night (and learn colors and numbers) in English and in Spanish.
