When I had the chance to take part in the blog tour for this book, I knew I had to. Since it looks all kinds of adorable and fun. Feeling very thankful that I was able to take part in the tour and get an early copy of the book in the mail. I'm so glad I decided to read this book, because it was pretty great. Not perfect, but very adorable. Giving it four stars, as I liked it a whole lot, yet it was also not completely for me. My review will not be very long, since this picture book was so short, but will be sharing all my thoughts about it even so.
This book tells the story of Mason and his two best friends. It's his birthday and they are spending it at the museum. They are having an awesome scavenger hunt through a museum, filled with clues to lead them to the correct exhibit. I liked the clues a bunch and liked the story too. It was quick but pretty cute. Mason and his friends seemed adorable. And the illustrations in this story was so stunning. I loved the drawings so much. They were done well. Not too much writing in this book, but that was done well too. I enjoyed it.
There is not that much to say about this book. It was short, yet good too. I wouldn't have minded if it had been longer as well. It's a small adventure book filled with great things inside of a museum. I really liked learning about the different exhibits there. I wanted there to be a bit more of all of it, but still. This story was fast and cute. I liked that the children were not alone in this museum, that a guide was with them, though not always in the pictures. It made it feel safer and more real too. Mostly enjoyed this book a lot.
I must admit to having never visited a museum before. As I live in a smallish town and our museum is not very big and it is mostly about the history of our town. I must go one day, though. Because I do not know much about museums, I did not know it was possible to have a sleepover at some. Which happens in this book, and it was all kinds of awesome. At the end of the book it is shared where you can do sleepovers at museums. I loved that the information was included in the book. All kids should get a museum sleepover.
And now I'm wishing I could have a sleepover at a museum too. As this book made it sound like so much fun. I'm glad I gave this book a try. Because it was pretty sweet and such a fast and fun read too. I loved the illustrations so very much, especially the ones of the museum animals. Sleepover at the Museum was a fun and quick read. A treasure hunt through the museum full of clues. I think that many kids will adore this book. Huge thank you to the publisher for letting me read this book early for free. I adored it a bunch.
Imagine spending your birthday at the museum! Join Mason and his friends on their scavenger hunt through all the exhibits that make any natural history museum so special. The perfect birthday gift for museum lovers and adventure-seekers alike!
Mason couldn't wait to celebrate his birthday with a sleepover at the museum of natural history--his favorite place to visit.
Armed 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!
