Sophie and her baby brother both play with books but very differently. Sophie enjoys reading books, while Sammy likes to write on them and rip them up. Sophie attends a library sleepover and learns that reading books is very fun and can be done every single night if one wants to. She brings back the imagination of these books back home and shares them with Sammy. He begins to read with his sister every night before bed and soon he loves books the same as Sophie. ( )

Sophie loves to read, but her brother doesn't know how to take care of books. Will Sophie let him have a library sleepover? Have the kids read stories together in small groups like they are having a library sleepover.

Sophie and Sammy loved books, but for different reasons. Sammy has to learn how to treat books while Sophie continues to read and tell Sammy all about the wonderful books she reads. Sophie's mom took her to a library for a sleepover. The librarian reads books as the children act out the stories. The next night, Sophie held her own sleepover for her and Sammy. He learned to love books as much as Sophie. I like this book because it shows students that reading can be fun.

Sophie's little brother doesn't take care of his books, so he can't go to the library "sleepover". Responsible Sophie gets to go and hear the librarian read stories until a candle burns out and it's time to go home. Luckily for little brother, Sophie's a budding librarian herself, so she'll share the experience with him.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688106153, Hardcover)

Sophie loved to read books, and Sammy loved to throw them. And so the night of the library sleepover, Sophie went and Sammy stayed home.

And what a night it was! Everyone -- even Mrs. Terry the librarian -- was wearing pajamas or nightgowns. Mrs. Terry lit a candle and read stories. Sophie loved it all, and she knew Sammy would have loved it, too.

The next night, with a little help from her mother, Sophie let Sammy share the magic. She set up a book bed, and they had a library sleepover -- at home. It was such fun that Sammy gave up book throwing -- and Sophie decided to be a librarian when she grew up.
