Santa Barbara, California   March 27, 2014   Entertainment News
(PRLEAP.COM) "The Yawn that Went Around the World," a new book written and illustrated by Caroline L. DeLoreto, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Have you ever wondered where your last yawn came from? Whom it had already visited? Or where it may travel to next? This book is a story in which you will travel around the world and back again, following a yawn being contagiously caught. You'll find yourself yawning and falling asleep as you, yourself, catch "The Yawn That Went Around The World."

Caroline DeLoreto found her inspiration for this book ten years ago when her mom dropped her off at Bishop Diego High School and she yawned as she got out of the car. Caroline became curious as to where that yawn had come from and where it was traveling to next. Her mom said that sounded like a great children's book and so the idea was born about "The Yawn that Went Around the World." She hopes it will inspire your own curiosity about yawns and their mysterious way of traveling around.
