Today we’re flashing back to February 2021 with Yawn by Patricia Hegarty. Following a yawn that spreads around the entire world, this rhyming picture book is the perfect bedtime read.
It all starts with one little yawn that passes to a dog, then a cat, and eventually moving all the way into outer space. Yawn will have your little one yawning in no time. Seriously, I had to fight off a yawn myself. It’s contagious!
The illustrations by Teresa Bellón are so fun, and I love the way the die cuts compliment them on every page. My toddler is obsessed with “peekaboos”, so I know this one is going to be a hit for our bedtime routine.
You can pick up your own copy of Yawn for your bedtime routine wherever books are sold, including Bookshop and Amazon. (Please note: Some links provided are affiliate links.

Thank you so much to Tiger Tales and Publisher Spotlight for providing me with a review copy of Yawn. I can’t wait to share it with my sleepy little one!
