Twenty Yawns blog tour + giveaway

Today we are celebrating the publication of a wonderful new picture book from author Jane Smiley and Caldecott honor illustrator Lauren Castillo. It is the perfect, gentle picture book to read to your wee ones (or your big ones) at bedtime. It's a book that reflects the satisfaction of crawling into bed after a long, hard day of play, which perfectly complements with Lauren Castillo's signature illustration style of thick, bold lines paired with soft, serene colors. But don't take my word for it. See what a kid has to say about Twenty Yawns:

About the Author:

In 2001 she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and in 2006 she received the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award for Literature. This is her first picture book.
