We loved this story! So sweet and gentle. Perfect illustrations.

Twenty Yawns features a joyful, multicultural family staying at the beach longer than they ever had before, leading to yawns throughout the sleepy household. Even stuffed toys and family members in photos catch the yawn! Beautiful illustrations and warm, peaceful tone make this a perfect bedtime story.

There's nothing like a long day at the beach to tucker out the entire family! After splashing, sandcastles, and kite-flying, Lucy and her yawning parents head home for an early bedtime. Once there, however, mom and dad nod off long before Lucy does, leaving the pajama-clad child to contemplate the quiet, moonlit house on her own. Cozy illustrations and a low-key counting activity (yes, there are 20 yawns to find) add to the winsome tone of this picture book debut from adult novelist Jane Smiley. Young readers who are curious about being the only one awake in a sleeping household may also appreciate Mordecai Gerstein's The Night World.
