YAWNS

BY

Jane Smiley

Pulitzer Prize Winner

ILLUSTRATED BY

Lauren Castillo

Caldecott Honor Artist

L UCY HAS A LONG, FUN DAY at the beach with her mom and dad. “Early bedtime!” says Mom as all three yawn and head for home. Lucy drifts off as Mom reads her a bedtime story, but later awakens to a dark, quiet house with everyone asleep except for her. She gathers her stuffed animal friends for company and tucks them in, one by one. Soon everyone begins to yawn again, sending Lucy peacefully to sleep. Featuring lyrical text and beautiful illustrations, this bedtime tale from Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley and Caldecott Honor artist Lauren Castillo evokes the splashy fun of the beach and the quiet of a moonlit night, with twenty yawns sprinkled in for children to discover and count.
