This was a nice Franklin the turtle book; helping children understand that it's okay to feel a little nervous about sleeping over at a friends house for the first time. This story was well written about Bear sleeping over at Franklin's house and how Franklin and his parents make Bear feel better. This story and the cartoon are 'similar' but are different. So if your child is used to the show they maybe a little disappointed but the storybook is a good one.
Very cute book! Would be a good book to read to children before their first sleepover. Franklin has Bear over for a sleepover and he gets homesick. Good opportunity to talk to children about what to do if they get homesick.

Franklin Has a Sleepover was a great bedtime story. It was also a great book to read to help introduce correct behaviors when sleeping over at a friends house.
