The Yawns Are Coming!

Funny picture book alert! The Yawns Are Coming, written and illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos, was an August 2020 release. So glad to snag it on the "New Books" display at the library.

It's very cute! Who hasn't looked forward to a sleepover and a night of carefully planned out activities only to crash and burn well before midnight?

I could never stay up and now I know why!  

Blame it on The Yawns!  
Followed by a DOZE! 
And then the dreaded and despised SNORES are coming for you! 
And finally, the SLEEPIES finish you off!

I know my First Graders will love it and I'm pretty sure it's going to be a huge hit- night after night- for bedtime storytimes!


You WILL yawn as you're reading it between your laughs.

Trust me.  

You will.

At least 3 times. Maybe 4. Possibly 5.  Yep.

Lucky for us, the author reads the book to us!  (If you can't see video on mobile, click HERE.)

There are a few versions of him reading so see which video is best for your class.  

This book will be fun to revisit when we're learning how to use BIG and BOLD words in our writing!
