Yawn by Nick Sharratt and Sally Symes (Walker, £9.99)

A joyous take on the bedtime story, with lots of linguistic fun for young ears. Sean opens his mouth wide and gives a wide yawn (a huge hole cut into each page), which then in turn prompts a cat, bird, fish and all of Sean’s other cuddly toys to yawn too, as the narrative passes along. If your child has never noticed how easy it is to start yawning when someone else does, this will be a great book they will enjoy again and again – until the yawns turn into zeds, that is.
