Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This bedtime book for little sleepyheads plays with the notion that yawns are contagious. A baby yawns, setting off a chain reaction: “Sean gave a yawn while sitting on his mat. Guess who it gave it to. A scruffy, fluffy . . . Cat.” A die-cut black circle serves as the wide-open mouth for each of the bold, graphic characters, while the rhyming text provides fun clues about where the yawn will travel next. Once it has passed down the line from pig to bee to bunny, it’s time for jammies and bed. A lovely way to say “goodnight.” Preschool. --Ann Kelley

Review

From one tired tot through an impressive array of animals, a mighty yawn passes along... With such an enthusiastic call to participate, Wynken, Blynken and Nod stand no chance here.

We first borrowed this book from the library and our 18 month old daughter liked it so much we bought it here on amazon. While reading the book she pretends to yawn, and it helps her get in the mood to go to bed. The book also has a nice rhyming rhythm that we all enjoy and cute illustrations that will keep a young baby or toddler engaged.

This is just a cute rhyming bedtime story. It is fun to have in the collection. Animals pass a yawn around then go to bed.

Got this first at the library. My son doesn't seem to tire of it after multiple long term check outs. Like the rhyming and predictable repetitive elements. My son enjoys the cut out in the book.

My two-year-old loves this story. She was so excited to see it in her Easter basket this year. It was the first thing that she grabbed.

I first saw this book at a local baby storytime and knew I had to get a copy. The die-cut hole is so much fun and the story is simple with a wonderful rhythm. It's fun to add animal noises too. We read this before naps and bedtimes every day. My son is 11 months old and we've been enjoying it for the past month and a half. I can make it all the way through the book without loosing him.

I've also given it as a gift to rave reviews.

It's a great book, but be ready to pass the yawn around the family as well (: My son loves this book, takes it from the book case on his own.
