Counting Lost Sheep

What is it about sheep that made them the go-to animal to count when someone wants to go to sleep? Why not cows? Or sloths? Or turtles?

Today's gag came out of my family's study of Come, Follow Me. In addition to this joke, I'm also producing an activity page every week that corresponds to the Come, Follow Me curriculum. If this is something you might be interested in, sign up for the Ward Cartoonist Activity Page Newsletter. You'll find all the information about the newsletter here.

*Based on sales of Mormon Life, there is a strong probability this is new to you.
