Lulu is excited about her first sleepover at cousin Hani’s house. She chooses what to bring then off she goes. The day with Hani is packed! They play in the garden and make water pictures. After lunch (when Lulu tries cucumbers for the first time!) they dress up and watch a movie. When it’s time for bed, Auntie Almaz shares a special story about when she and Lulu’s daddy were little. Sleepovers are an important rite of passage for young children who will be reassured by this gentle story and will love watching the little cousins play together.
Sleepovers can be a challenge but not to worry, Lulu’s here to guide us. It’s easy to see why everyone loves spending time with Lulu and how she is fast becoming a reassuring role model for a new generation of young readers.
What child doesn’t love a sleepover with their best friend? This gentle, sweet, inclusive story is like a warm hug.
Oozing homely cosiness, each exquisitely crafted page gently reassures early readers about this exciting step on the road to independence… perfect for pre-schoolers, reminding them new adventures can be fun.
