A Book Review by 
Oliver the Telepathic Puppy

Have you ever noticed that when you see somebody yawn, it makes you feel like yawning, too? This book is about that. It’s also about how you have to be careful not to yawn. When you yawn, you look tired. If you look tired, you’ll be told it’s bedtime. Sometimes you don’t want to go to bed. You want to play. You want to draw. You want to watch TV. This book has tips for how to keep from yawning so you won’t have to go to bed early.

I like this book. It’s funny. The little boy in the book runs away from comfy pajamas and cuddly stuffed animals because those things lead to yawning. He also covers his ears so he can’t hear bedtime songs. He doesn’t want to be sent to bed.

If you don’t want to be sent to bed, be careful when you read this book. It has a lot of pictures of people and animals yawning. Seeing those pictures made me yawn. I yawned three times when I read this book. You should only read this book if nobody is around to see you yawn or if you’re ready to go to bed.
