I Dare You Not To Yawn by Helene Boudreau

The perfect bedtime story....for both parent and child.  You will be yawning before the end of the first 5 pages.  In this book a boy is trying to fight the urge...YAWN.....the power of....YAWN......the contagious power of the.....YAWN......  By giving sure fire ways to avoid the avoiding "huggable stuffed animals, soft cozy pajamas, and your favorite blankie" you might actually be able to avoid yawning and the dreaded bedtime.  But you will also want to avoid the "sleepy-time songs about twinkling stars or baaing sheep, especially the counting kind".  A very funny, enjoyable book that adults will be able to relate to as well.  Would be great for dramatic read aloud....if you can stay awake.
