I Dare You Not to Yawn

Have you ever played Truth or Dare?  Author Helene Boudreau dares us not to yawn!  She even gives us several tips to  help us in her book I Dare You Not to Yawn.  So, the next time you feel a yawn coming on...grab her book and reread steps 1-10.

A yawn can land you in your pj’s and under the covers before you can blink and say "Baa baa black sheep." So clamp your mouth shut and look away from your sleepy dog, stay away from your cuddly blanket, and whatever you do, don’t think of baby orangutans stretching their long arms out for a snuggly hug. Otherwise, you might find your mouth opening wide and letting out a great big yawny yaaaaaawn — hey, you were supposed hold it in! A hilarious read-aloud that is so much fun, kids will beg for it again and again, whatever the consequences.

Before we read this story, we're going to play a quick game of Truth or Dare using the cards below. Print them out to play a game at home with your friends.
