"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.
and how the issue is resolved is heart-warming.
This is an amusing tale which captures children's attention. Every child's library should have it. Parents and teachers enjoy reading it aloud, too.
