I am a big fan of Carole P Roman and was fortunate enough to participate in a Book Tour for some of her children’s books. She is a terrific children’s writer, certainly one of the recent best.. As a retired teacher I appreciate her attention to detail, well written sentences and developmentally appropriate writing. As a reader I love the subject matter and her characters.
This book is written for elementary age children. Susannah is of course the main character. She is 8 years old and has been invited to her first sleepover. The lesson to be learned is that you can ask people for help. Roman does a terrific job of dealing with Susannah’s fears. Not only is this book a helpful read for getting prepared for a sleepover but it is also a good Halloween, afraid of the dark read. I would certainly read this chapter book out loud to my PreK through 3rd grade class. You just cannot go wrong with a book by Carole P Roman.
