The Goldfish Yawned is one of those books that my son checked out from the library and he loved so much that we had to buy our own copy. Before the three-week check-out time had ended. It is also a perfect book to read during April, a/k/a Poetry Month, because it reads like a whimsical poem. It begins: The goldfish yawned. The firefly blinked. The yellow cat licked her tail.
My little boy was drawn to the stunning artwork on the cover (as was I). The artwork within the covers is every bit as stunning and delightful.
