Can you yawn like a fawn? by Monica Sweeney - ADVISABLE

Sweeney, Monica Can you yawn like a fawn, illustrated by Laura Watkins.  PICTURE BOOK.  St. Martin’s Castle Point, 2016.  $16.  With certified pediatric sleep consultant Lauren Yelvington.

After the success of The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep, of course there will be other books helping anxious parents to get their wee ones to fall asleep.  The illustrations are heads and shoulders superior to the rabbit book – when Crown bought the American rights I was so hoping that they would re-illustrate before publishing.  While I am not sure about promoting a copycat, this picture book is a charming.
