so first of all i want to be clear that my experience with this book was reading it over my sister's shoulder while looking through the children's books section at a bookstore. both of us are grown women. our mom was there too, and she's even more grown than us.

anyway, SPOILERS FOLLOW. i need to spoil the book to explain why it made me start crying in the middle of a mall bookstore.

basically, the plot of this book is: polly gets invited to a friend's party. polly's going through a phase, though,

Polly loves her pink pajamas and wears them ALL DAY LONG. When she is invited to a party at her friend Fred's, she borrows some brightly colored clothing from various friends to wear over top. This won't do. Alas. Yet, all turns out right in the end when Fred informs her that it is a PAJAMA party!
I need to have a pajama storytime. All of Polly's friends apparently have their favorite PJs (with matching accessories), too.
It's a very simple book, with two to three sentences to a page, at the most, and the illustrations are a bit crude (to me), but my daughter liked this book, and we'd have some really nice discussions about the illustrations, and the detail in them, so my rating is partly my daughter's "love this book," and partly my appreciation for a book that lends itself to nice conversations during bedtime.

It was amazing.

A cute story about a girl named Polly who doesn't want to get out of her pink pajamas, is invited to her friend's party and doesn't have much else to this at pj storytime. It's not a particularly exciting read, but is good for identifying colors and has a cute, happy ending!

Picked this up for my daughter the other day and she absolutely loves it...but there are not many books she does not love. This one was really cute and I love the illustrations...Sophie insists on wearing pink pajamas at night now, which could pose a problem.

Polly always wears her pink pajamas, until she is invited to a party. She borrows some clothes, but they don't fit. Then she gets a phone call and finds out it is a pajama party. Both a little girl and her older brother were quite fascinated with this.
When Polly, who loves her pink pajamas, is invited to a party she panics at the thought of what to wear. She pulls together an outfit with help from her friends but it's not right! Girls who loves clothes and/or pink pajamas will enjoy this book.
Polly only wears her favorite pink pajamas all day and all night until she invited to a birthday party and decides she needs party clothes. What happens when Polly decides all the colorful clothes she has borrowed just don't look right?

Great for pajama storytime. Polly loves her pink pajamas, but when she's invited to a party, she needs to borrow different colors/patterns from her friends. She doesn't like her outfit... but soon discovers it is a PAJAMA party!! Pre-K-K
As you know, I don't love pink....but this book was kinda awesome! It is a cute story but could also be used as a color there are stripped socks, red dress, blue shoes, and a green sweater.. Cute and fun!!
Very cute story and darling illustrations. Little girls (geared to 3+) would love it, and it would make a great bedtime book. It's on my to-buy list for my daughter.

Polly love her pink pajamas and wears them every day. What happens when she gets invited to a birthday party is funny and cute.
Literary value ... three stars. Pictures and four-year-old niece who LOVES pink ... lots more stars. She approves heartily.
Connie Klever
Very cute & would make a great prop or flannel story. Good for bedtime, pajamas, getting dressed themed storytimes.
Got this book from the library last week and my little girl won't put it down, I may have to go buy this book.

Tempie loves this book, most likely because it involves pink, and it's also tons of fun to say 'pink pajamas'
I love this book because my teacher Ms.Rosa reads it to me every day when i go to her house.
I had to give this 5 stars because this story totally reminded me of my daughter! Great, fun read!
Cute picture book that will appeal to fans of Pinkalicious and Fancy Nancy.
A cute picture book I used to teach my students alliteration.
