This interactive book may seem to be on your side, reluctant sleeper -- but it's truly a bedtime book in disguise! New from New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Amy Krouse Rosenthal and David Roberts!

Here's how it works: if you can avoid getting to the end of this book, you can avoid bedtime, simple as that. (It's a pretty sweet deal, actually.) But each time you blink, you have to turn a page. Those are just the rules. So whatever you do, DON'T BLINK!

From New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Amy Krouse Rosenthal and David Roberts comes a playful, super-duper interactive bedtime story, narrated by a cheeky stuffed owl. Kids love a challenge, and you can bet they'll do their darndest to rise to the one set out in Don't Blink!...especially when bedtime is on the line!

Don’t Blink! written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by David Roberts shares a bedtime story that encourages the listener or reader to interact. This was a fun story that the Royals enjoyed. The story is narrated by a stuffed owl who tells the reader/listener that each time they blink they must turn the page. The book is primarily in black and white with a few colorful pages. The illutations are simple and comforting. The language and words are fun with talks of Holy Pillow Puffs and wiggly font and sentences.  It’s a cute story that is loads of fun but also designed to prepare your young ones for sleep. Giggles and relaxation occurred as Sophia tried not to blink, counted feet and stared at swirling circles. As we read we tried not to blink, laughed when we did, stared at each other until we giggled and got dizzy looking at optical illusions. While Clayton was too young to fully appreciate the story, he certainly thought his sister and I were funny.

    How adorable is this one. I love it. We have had a death in the family and well, I just don’t feel like coming on line. This is the first day and I picked this review just cause it was so darn cute I had to. I hope all is well.
