Booklist Review

The idea of sleep, to many kids and teens, is anathema; after all, suppose something happened while they're conked out for the evening? With her coauthor, Ripple, author of four other "What do I do?" books for parents, tackles about eight different issues with her fifth book--on slumber parties. There's the matter of baby-sitters--now completely unnecessary when following one of her 14 party ideas. Or the child entertainment factor, obliterated by a great selection of creative ideas, from cartoon to safari themes. Even the food challenge, solved by easy-to-make snack-type recipes. Every sleepover includes instructions galore: reproducible invitations, crafts, stories to tell, games and videos to play, plus a 20-something list of extra ideas should hours need to be filled. A first chapter on the whats, whys, and hows of slumber parties answers almost every conceivable parental query, from handling bedwetting accidents to ascertaining if a child is ready for a sleepover. --Barbara Jacobs
