I Dare You Not to Yawn
“Yawns are sneaky. They can creep up on you when you least expect them.” And--yawns can lead to pajamas, bedtime stories, lullabies and tucking in—whether you’re ready or not! The book serves as a witty warning for all those readers who are definitely not ready for bed, with challenges to resist anything cozy, cuddly, sleepy or snuggly. But, also heed my warning: this book will make you yawn, not because it’s boring, but because--as author Hélène Boudreau knows all too well--yawns are contagious! This charming funny book with the lively, distinctive cartoon modern illustrations by Serge Bloch (see last month’s review for I Scream, Ice Cream) makes the perfect ease-into-bedtime story, or feature in a bedtime-themed storytime. This review is dedicated to Kristi.
This book is recommended for ages 3-8.
