Just try to resist this comical — and infectious — cautionary fable that will have even bedtime-avoiders gladly snuggling up for a nightly challenge.

A yawn can land you in your pj’s and under the covers before you can blink and say "Baa baa black sheep." So clamp your mouth shut and look away from your sleepy dog, stay away from your cuddly blanket, and whatever you do, don’t think of baby orangutans stretching their long arms out for a snuggly hug. Otherwise, you might find your mouth opening wide and letting out a great big yawny yaaaaaawn — hey, you were supposed hold it in! A hilarious read-aloud that is so much fun, kids will beg for it again and again, whatever the consequences.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book!!! My five year old son absolutely loved this book. And I have to admit, Mom does too. It's actually quite hard to get through it without both of us yawning, and usually results in a few giggles too. Great bedtime book!!!

Editorial Reviews

Boudreau’s pacing is impeccable; Bloch’s stylish digitally colored ink illustrations amplify the text’s humor while helping to telegraph its thinly disguised subliminal message. ... Stop haranguing noncompliant children at bedtime; I Dare You Not to Yawn will put them right where you want them…though be prepared to fall under its spell, too. Resistance is futile.
—The Horn Book
