"Suppose Ira doesn't like sleeping without his teddy bear.
Suppose he absolutely hates sleeping without his teddy bear.
Should he take his teddy bear with him? Will Reggie laugh at him?"
Ira Sleeps Over is an outstanding, read-aloud bedtime tale. It is written with a firm grasp of kindergarten logic and will appeal to children and parents alike. Bernard Waber did a wonderful job of properly pacing the dialogue and it really is a delight to read out loud. There are a couple characters, providing an enjoyable opportunity to affect different voices and even different styles for the same character at different times.
The book runs 48 pages, but it is very easy to finish in under ten minutes. My wife and I frequently read it to our two boys. It is a favorite of our 4-year-old and occupies a proud place among the top bedtime books on our shelf.
The Author's Message in this story is it is okay to be different. I chose this because when Ira saw that Reggie had a teddy bear and Ira promised that he would not laugh at Reggie's teddy bear name. If you like Ira Sleeps Over you might like Bad Case of the stripes. You might like this because they both have the same Author's Message it is okay to be different. I liked the story because I like having sleepovers and I like teddy bears. I think you should buy this book at the store. I live in Killingly, Connecticut, USA. I am 7 years old.
