It's got plenty of repetition, so my toddler can chime in all the way through the book. As I'm reading, I get into the sheep character and read him as frustrated and frazzled, and my toddler finds this very funny. It's got lots of emotion, and for a toddler who's been used to books that are mostly serious or happy, this is a welcome change. We've been reading this since my son was about 2, and I have a feeling we'll be reading it for quite a while.
Great illustrations too! They do a great job at conveying the sheep's frustrating and the humor in the situation.
I start a bit slow, then build the angst, page by page, animal by animal, until the poor frazzled sheep is sleeping late because he slept so badly. My son loves to watch for the doorway shadow in the book so he knows which animal comes next - and is more than happy to tell me when I skip a page.
This is a treasured favourite. I enjoy reading it, he enjoys having it read to him. The cadence and the story are absolutely wonderful.
He also enjoys "reading it" to others - but in his rendition, it's the "big red barn, big red barn, farm, big red farm barn". I giggle. These moments will slip away, but I'll put this one on my bookshelf after he's done reading it, just to flip through it and remember.
