Overview

WANT TO SLEEP OVER? COME JOIN THE FUN!

It's the last week of second grade, and Taylor has big news for her best friends, Emily, Jo, and Kara: She's inviting them to her house on Friday night to celebrate! But this is no ordinary party -- it's going to be their first sleepover party!

The girls can't wait to stay up late, play games, and watch movies. But Emily is also secretly worried. She knows her parents aren't going to let her spend the night at Taylor's, and she doesn't want to be left out of all the fun.

Will Emily have to stay home and miss the party, or can she find a way to prove to her parents that she's old enough to go?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Oliver
Emily and her friends are looking forward to the end of the school year and moving on to third grade in the fall. To celebrate, one of the girls suggests a slumber party, a suggestion that prompts Emily to burst into tears in the middle of the lunchroom. Emily's parents have just consented to remove the night-light from her room and she is sure they will never allow her to attend the party. Sure enough, Emily's parents tell her that she is too young for a slumber party. The girls put their heads together to come up with a way to persuade Emily's parents to consent, which they eventually do. Emily and her friends have a lively sleepover party and look forward to more in the future. Although a bit saccharine, the story is one that the average seven year old can relate to, even if their parents are not overly protective organic vegetable growers. The sketch-like illustrations are a nice companion to the text and reinforce the little-girl perspective. A series is in the works and while it is unlikely to be the most popular read in the library, it will probably find a following. With limited appeal—boys will not read this and neither will anyone over the age of eight—it is a good consideration for an additional purchase or for a paperback collection.
