Book Review: Sleepy Sheepy and Daniel by Daniel Holom
by Eve Culley
What do you get with a servant of God, a long-legged camel, a wise old horse and a small fluffy lamb named Sleepy Sheepy???
Open these pages and learn how these unlikely heroes follow God and put their kingdom back together again. Boys, girls, big kids, Moms and Dads will marvel at how God unleashes His will through prayer using a willing servant and a barnyard of loveable animals.”
Jeff Moseley – President, CEO Greater Houston Partnership
Cute story appeal as told by three of Daniel’s animals. There is Sleepy Sheepy, a fluffy lamb, Sifter the wise old horse, and Coco the camel. The animals try their best to watch over Daniel and learn what trusting God is all about.
I enjoyed the “what if’s” from the animal’s perspective and think that your child will too.

About the Book Reviewer
Storytelling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that as I tell stories, putting them on paper, it makes room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon.
I write for children because of their wonderful imaginations they are the very best at believing that the probable can become possible.
Nothing is any better than when the reader climbs into the adventure and joins the journey with you.
