Can’t Sleep Without Sheep Jingle Contest!

7 May


Susanna Leonard Hill is celebrating the release of her book “Can’t Sleep Without Sheep” as an ebook with a jingle contest! It is available in all ebook-formats starting TODAY! Click HERE to learn more about it!

Here is my entry… although I guess it is more of a rap than a jingle (I don’t even like rap, but that’s what it seemed to be for me). I have to thank my little sister Josie for being the best sheep ever (check out Josie’s entry in Ms. Hill’s Kids Coloring Contest HERE) and my mom for making her sheep costume in under ten minutes (I was kind of rushing to get this done).

I called it “Got To Count Sheep.” I hope you like it!

      Thank you for sharing it!! πŸ™‚


      • clarbojahn May 10, 2013 at 11:21 am #

        This has been great fun! Are you on Facebook? πŸ™‚


      • thiskidreviewsbooks May 10, 2013 at 4:18 pm #

        I am! I just found and liked your page!


      • clarbojahn May 10, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

        Oh! Thanks! I”m going to look you up. Did you know you could have done that by going to my author page from my blog? It’s on the side bar.

        Do readers of my blog see that? I wonder?


      • thiskidreviewsbooks May 11, 2013 at 11:14 am #

        I have trouble with “liking” on FB because my page is linked to my mom’s personal page (because I’m a kid my parents have everything linked to their accounts) and so when I visit people’s pages and I see the like button it actually goes to my moms page. I have to tell her who I want to like and then she approves it or not for my page. I am sure that other people don’t have a problem. πŸ™‚


      • clarbojahn May 20, 2013 at 8:42 am #

        This is a good idea for you, Erik. thanks for explaining it to me. There is so little safety in the internet that I’m glad your parents are watching out for you.

        Much love,

    Erik, I’m in love with your family. Your mom is the BEST for designing that sheep costume. Oh and that last “Baaaaa” by your sister, let’s just say I’m still laughing outloud. LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I know Susanna is over the moon with this. I”m having so much fun viewing everyone’s entry. Our pb community is the best!


    • thiskidreviewsbooks May 10, 2013 at 4:10 pm #

    LOVE this! It’s funny, clever, very well put together. It’s amazing what can be accomplished through cooperation, isn’t it? πŸ™‚
    And I must add, Wolliam’s expression and little baaah at the end is a comical ending.
