Kids, don your jammies and join us for a Bedtime Story with the author/illustrator herself! Lori Joy Smith reads We Adopted a Baby Lamb, an irresistible and unique twist on the pet story for fans of cute baby animals. 



An adorable and rascally lamb is the latest addition to the family in this sweet picture book based on a true story.

Ila is excited about her family’s move to the country—mostly because it means she can have more pets! But no one expected their next addition to be a lamb. When Albert first comes home, he sleeps a lot, he eats a lot…and he pees on the floor A LOT. Ila and her sister and parents quickly learn how to care for a baby sheep—they must feed him and protect him. It’s not easy because Albert gets into everything! He eats the tulips from the flower bed, chews on car bumpers, chases the dog (and hides from the cats). Ila and her family does everything to make Albert happy and healthy, but she can’t help feeling like her little lamb might be missing something from his life. Maybe he needs a friend? But Ila soon realizes that she doesn’t need to look for a friend for Albert—he already has his flock.
