What's the Story?:
From Goodreads.com: "Mason couldn't wait to celebrate his birthday with a sleepover at the museum of natural history--his favorite place to visit.
with headlamps for the dark hallways, a map, and a list of clues, Mason
and his two best friends take off on a scavenger hunt through each hall
of the museum. But they aren't just trying to solve the clues. They're
scouting for the best place to spend the night.
Sleeping next to a
T. rex in the Hall of Dinosaurs felt too scary. And sleeping with the
monarch butterflies would probably tickle. This decision isn't as easy
as Mason thought it would be....
Wherever they end up, the museum at night is the best place for a birthday adventure!"
My Two Cents:
"Sleepover at the Museum" is the story of Mason, a very lucky kid who gets to celebrate his birthday with his best friends with a sleepover at the local Natural History museum. A sleepover at a museum? Sign me up! Mason will get to go on a scavenger hunt and have the best birthday ever!
This book was a lot of fun! We loved playing along at home as Mason and his friends discover a lot of really cool things at the museum. We have the fortune of having easy access to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History (when it's not closed by the government shutdown... ugh) and this book made for a good entry into talking about our own experiences at the museum as a family.
The illustrations in the book are good and colorful. My girls loved looking at all of the pictures, especially those of all the really cool stuff that Mason and his friends discover. The writing of the book was straight forward and accessible. This book would be great for the little museum lovers in your life!
