  • Why You’ll Want: Don’t Blink!

  • Don’t Blink!

    by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by David Roberts

    A glass of water. Another story. That stuffed animal they haven’t seen since last summer but they suddenly just CANNOT sleep without. Parents have heard it all when it comes to kids trying to avoid bedtime. Lucky for families everywhere, Don’t Blink! can help with that. How so? If readers can avoid getting to the end of the book, they can avoid going to bed. Easy enough, except every time they blink they must turn the page. A little owl offers advice on how to keep those eyes open — staring, squinting, and getting all those blinks out at once. Even as their eyes start to droop, children will love engaging with this fun and innovative book from the beloved Amy Krouse Rosenthal. They might not even mind when they reach the end of the book … with any luck, they’ll already be asleep.
