App Description

Best Friends Sleepover
Written and illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers
PicPocket Books
Reading Level: 4-8 years

Best Friends Sleepover: All of Gilbert’s best friends will be at the slumber party, but Gilbert worries that he won’t be able to go to sleep unless his mother tucks him in and sings him his favorite song. Gilbert’s friends help him get through his first night away from home in Jacqueline Rogers’ humorous and heartwarming story about friendship. And her richly detailed watercolor paintings perfectly capture the spirit of four rambunctious little boys, who just happen to look like animals. Originally published by Scholastic Books.
