About Judy Cox
I was born in San Francisco. I'm the oldest of five children and enjoyed telling stories from an early age. I am a retired reading specialist. I was inspired to write children's books by my love of literature, by raising my son, and by teaching my students.

Mrs. Millie is really silly. She loves to substitute animal words for other words when talking to her kindergarten class. On a class trip to Philadelphia, the kids board a "platypus" (school bus), "hold hens with their buddies" (hold hands with their buddies), and visit the "Liberty Bull" (Liberty Bell). The students love to laugh and correct their favorite teacher. What fun! Joe Mathieu's colored pencil, pen, and ink artwork literally interprets each of Mrs. Millie's "mistakes" and adds hilarity to this lighthearted read-aloud about the city of brotherly love.
Every morning at school, Mrs. Millie says, "Please hang up your book bugs."
The kindergarteners know she means book bags, and they laugh whenever their teacher talks silly. On Mrs Millie's birthday, the children decide to throw a surprise party. They decorate the classroom with baboons (balloons) and set out chocolate cubcakes (cupcakes) and apple moose (juice). Mrs. Millie has never enjoyed such a wonderful bird-day! The illustrations rendered in Prismacolor pencil, dyes, pen, and ink highlight the fun in this classroom romp.
Mrs. Millie has lots of fun teasing her kindergartners. She tells them to hang up their goats, eat gorilla cheese sandwiches, and to remember to wear their bats and kittens when they go outside for recess. Coupled with hilarious artwork that literally interprets each of Mrs. Millie’s "mistakes," this lighthearted read-aloud sets a typical school day on its ear, even as it teaches a subtle lesson on wordplay.
Winner of the Mathical Book Prize!
A glass of warm milk, reading, working on her knitting—nothing can help Clarissa get to sleep. When even counting sheep doesn't help her doze off, she tried pairs of alpacas instead. Two, four, six . . . then llamas by fives . . . then yaks by tens!
But no one could sleep with a room full of bouncing, bleating, shedding animals. Determined to unravel her problem so she can get some sleep, Clarissa counts back down until she's all alone, and she can finally get some rest.
Introducing addition and subtraction by ones, twos, fives, and tens, Sheep Won't Sleep is part bedtime story, part math practice— and the hilarious illustrations of spotted, striped, and plaid animals are sure to appeal to imaginative readers of all ages. A perfect-- and fun!-- way to introduce and reinforce counting in groups, this is sure to be a study- and bedtime favorite!
