When one little boy starts yawning, it's not long before his entire neighborhood starts, too! The yawn spreads around the world to other countries, and even to space! From polar bears and penguins to elephants and astronauts the yawn circles the world and then comes for the reader letting them know that it is now bedtime!
What I loved: This is a cute book that shows just how contagious a yawn can be. With a silly scenario of a yawn carrying through people to animals and even up to outer space, this becomes a charming and giggle-worthy story. The rhyming text helps to make it all come together in a fun way. Colorful and detailed illustrations add to the charm of the story with cute animals, yawning planets and clouds, and more. The die-cut pages add to the fun of the book with differently sized pages that stack up and peek-through scenes.
The font is clear and easy to read, and the theme makes this one a great choice for bedtime. With silly fun writing, smoothly rhyming text, and so many yawns, this ends up being a great pick to wind down to sleep.
Final verdict: Silly, fun with great illustrations and die-cuts, YAWN is a bedtime book sure to charm young readers - and induce some yawns along the way. Recommend for preschool through elementary school aged readers.
