This story is about a boy named Ira who is going to sleep over his friend's house. Ira is nervous about it because he still sleeps with a teddy bear and he thinks Reggie will make fun of him. Ira finds out that he isn't the only one with a teddy bear. We liked this story because it had a lot of funny parts. You should read this book because the story is fun and the pictures are really good.

I love this book! I begged my mom to read it to me over and over again when I was little. Now I am going to be a teacher and I plan on having this book in my classroom at all times! It would be an excellent book to read to a child going on his/her first sleep over. But, actually, I think anyone (child or adult) would enjoy this book.

Great book to read to the family at bedtime. It is definitely on of the best books to read aloud. You are forced to sound like a seven-year-old boy as you read. Addresses the fear of what one's best friend might think when he finds out that you still sleep with a teddy bear.

SO cute, a perfect gift
Timeless StoryReviewed in the United States on July 15, 2020
We have been doing FaceTime story time with our granddaughter who lives in another state. This story captured and held her interest the very first time we read it. It is a book she requests regularly and we enjoy reading it to her every time. We enjoyed reading the book with our own children when they were little and the story is still meaningful today. I highly recommend this book.

Fun read for 2nd gradersReviewed in the United States on May 26, 2022
My son selected this book to read for a reading assignment. It was a excellent choice, as he could relate to the story (when children have things they are attached to such a blankets and teddy bears . The theme of the story is comprehendible to young readers and the illustrations are vividly stunning.
