This book is 100% guaranteed to make your child yawn and get them feeling sleepy. Sleep experts recommend it.

Millie has lost her yawn, and she can't get to sleep without it. First of all she looks close to home - but her pet dog and cat can't help - then she goes a little further afield. The Statue of Liberty hasn't seen her yawn, neither has the Mona Lisa, nor the penguins at the south pole, and the rabbits on the moon certainly haven't... Eventually Millie has to head back home, but as she lies back in bed and remembers all the wonderful friends she has made, her yawn reappears and she can finally fall asleep.

I was keen to review this book having previously read the highly acclaimed The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep, which I think my kids fell to sleep with due to boredom and repetition. Millie's Missing Yawn is a sweeter and less laborious read which the children enjoyed as a bedtime story. The illustrations were some what colourful which intrigued the children rather than relaxed them down, but a lovely book to share regardless.

Millie can't get to sleep and she thinks it's because she has lost her yawn. So she sets out to find it and travels around the world in search for it. The illustrations are gorgeous and I love that she goes to lots of different places such as the sphinx, Statue of liberty the moon..... Really enjoyed this book and my kids loved it too.

On the front cover of this  book is a big shiny label that says 'Yawn Guaranteed", so I was more than happy to put it to the test with my adamantly wide awake 4 year old! The story is just lovely; Millie looks for her yawn everywhere and meets so many famous landmarks as well as venturing to outer space. It's beautifully illustrated and is just so wonderfully different to regular 'bedtime' style books.
As for the yawning, I defy anyone to read it aloud without yawning; it's impossible! This definitely had the desired effect on my child, who fell sound asleep after listening to the story.

What a great bedtime book, a yawn guaranteed. Millie has lost her yawn, so she sets of and travels the world looking for it. She visits lots of famous places and even the moon, but has no luck. This book, did make my little boy yawn and also myself. A perfect bedtime read with amazing illustrations.

This book is guaranteed to make you yawn it says on the front cover! We were definitely going to put that to the test.  Millie has lost her yawn and this delightful story tells the tale of how she tries to find it.  Great illustrations and a fabulous storyline, it really does get you yawning and is highly recommended.

This book was a tremendous success in our house. The illustrations are beautiful and in slightly muted colours which suits a bedtime book. My daughter loved the fact that Millie was a little girl who looks like her and that she goes on an adventure (mum always pleased to see a female protagonist in a book too). The adventure involves finding lots of animals to see if they can find Millie's yawn which she thinks she has lost and hence can't sleep. My three-year-old often claims not to feel sleepy at bedtime so I think she felt an affinity with Millie and loved the animals making great big yawns. It didn't send her to sleep but it kept her interest and it certainly got me yawning too!

A fantastic bedtime story.
Millie is trying to find her yawn so she can go to sleep. She tried first in her house and then she went on world / space adventure to find  her missing yawn. 
It's such a beautiful picture book with fabulous illustrations. 
My daughters love reading them together and its became a firm favourite of them.

This is a fantastic book and perfect as a bedtime read. The story follows a little girl called Millie who just cannot get to sleep because she has lost her yawn. After looking around her house Millie decides to go out into the big wide world to find her yawn. She takes Milo her teddy bear and explores many different places, countries and more. We really enjoyed reading this book and definitely found our own yawns thanks to the wonderfully entertaining and yawn inducing story. A lovely book that we would definitely recommend.
