Now, teddies, are you all feeling cosy?

0:00:070:00:10

Excellent. HE LAUGHS

0:00:100:00:12

Oh, hello. I'm just in.

0:00:120:00:14

Now, all the toys are feeling sleepy,

0:00:140:00:17

and are snuggled up ready for tonight's bedtime story.

0:00:170:00:21

Are you feeling sleepy yet?

0:00:210:00:23

Oh?

0:00:230:00:24

Are you sure?

0:00:240:00:26

HE LAUGHS

0:00:260:00:27

I think I just saw a yawn.

0:00:270:00:30

No? Maybe not.

0:00:300:00:32

Well, I want you to count how many times you yawn while listening

0:00:320:00:37

to tonight's bedtime story.

0:00:370:00:40

It's called I Dare You Not To Yawn

0:00:400:00:44

and it's written by Helene Boudreau,

0:00:440:00:47

with illustrations by Serge Bloch.

0:00:470:00:49

Yawns are sneaky.

0:00:500:00:53

They can creep up on you when you least expect them.

0:00:540:00:59

There you are, minding your own business, building the tallest

0:00:590:01:03

block tower in the history of the universe,

0:01:030:01:06

or dressing up the cat...

0:01:060:01:08

CAT MEOWS

0:01:080:01:10

..when suddenly...

0:01:100:01:11

your arms stretch up,

0:01:110:01:13

your eyes squish tight,

0:01:130:01:16

your mouth opens w-i-i-ide,

0:01:160:01:19

your tongue curls back and...

0:01:190:01:21

HE YAWNS

0:01:230:01:26

..a yawn pops out.

0:01:270:01:29

Well, next thing you know you're being sent upstairs to put

0:01:290:01:33

your pyjamas on.

0:01:330:01:34

Pyjamas lead to bedtime stories.

0:01:340:01:37

Bedtime stories lead to the sleepy time song.

0:01:370:01:41

And sleepy time songs lead to goodnight hugs and kisses.

0:01:410:01:46

Before you know it, you're tucked into bed, snug as a bug,

0:01:460:01:50

and wondering, "How did I get here?"

0:01:500:01:54

So...

0:01:560:01:57

If you're not ready to go to bed, follow these tips,

0:01:570:02:01

and do not yawn.

0:02:010:02:04

HE LAUGHS

0:02:040:02:06

If someone else yawns,

0:02:060:02:08

like your baby brother or your big sister,

0:02:080:02:11

or the dog... DOG BARKS

0:02:110:02:14

Ah! Look away!

0:02:140:02:16

Yawns are like colds.

0:02:160:02:19

They spread.

0:02:190:02:21

Stay away from huggable stuffed animals,

0:02:210:02:25

soft, cosy pyjamas and your favourite blanky, because...

0:02:250:02:32

HE STARTS TO YAWN

0:02:320:02:34

..these can make you feel snuggly.

0:02:340:02:37

Avoid bedtime stories about sleepy baby animals,

0:02:380:02:43

like tiger cubs arching their backs in one last stretch,

0:02:430:02:48

their eyes squished tight and their tongues curled back...

0:02:480:02:53

TIGER YAWNS

0:02:530:02:55

..or you might start to feel stretchy too.

0:02:570:02:59

MORE YAWNING

0:02:590:03:01

Don't sing sleepy time songs about twinkling stars or...

0:03:010:03:06

SHEEP BLEATS

0:03:060:03:07

..bah-ing sheep.

0:03:070:03:09

Especially the counting kind.

0:03:090:03:11

One sheep, two sheep...

0:03:120:03:16

SHEEP BLEATS

0:03:160:03:18

HE YAWNS

0:03:190:03:21

And, whatever you do,

0:03:210:03:23

don't think of a droopy-eyed baby orang-utan,

0:03:230:03:29

holding its long arms out for a hug from its mama.

0:03:290:03:34

HE LAUGHS

0:03:340:03:35

Its little mouth forming a perfect O, O, O.

0:03:350:03:41

Uh-oh!

0:03:410:03:43

If you try all these things, but a yawn still creeps up and grabs

0:03:430:03:48

hold of you, quick, cover your mouth!

0:03:480:03:51

To keep it from escaping.

0:03:530:03:55

Because, if your arms stretch up...

0:03:550:03:57

HE GRUNTS

0:03:570:03:59

..your eyes squish tight...

0:03:590:04:02

TIGER YAWNS

0:04:020:04:03

..your mouth opens wide... SHEEP BLEATS

0:04:040:04:08

..your tongue curls back...

0:04:080:04:10

ORANG-UTAN HOOTS

0:04:100:04:12

..and a yawn pops out...

0:04:120:04:14

HE YAWNS

0:04:140:04:19

..then off to bed you'll go.

0:04:190:04:21

HE LAUGHS

0:04:210:04:22

See? I told you yawns are sneaky.

0:04:220:04:27

HE LAUGHS

0:04:270:04:29

How many times did you yawn?

0:04:290:04:31

Well, I didn't yawn even once.

0:04:310:04:34

Yep.

0:04:340:04:36

HE YAWNS

0:04:360:04:40

Oh, dear. HE LAUGHS

0:04:410:04:43

Whoops.

0:04:430:04:44

I think it's time to snuggle down like our friends here,

0:04:440:04:48

and yawn ourselves to sleep.

0:04:480:04:50

I'll see you soon for another bedtime story.

0:04:500:04:53

Night-night, sleepy heads.

0:04:530:04:55

HE LAUGHS

0:04:550:04:56

HE YAWNS

0:04:560:04:58

Oh, and another.

0:04:580:04:59

Justin Fletcher wonders how many times you will yawn through tonight's bedtime story, which is all about trying very hard not to yawn!
