Oh Susannah: Things That Go Bump by Carole P Roman

Oh Susanna Bump

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.
