The Bulletin
of the Center for Children's Books

The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Zzzzz: A Sleepover Dozen
--selected by Timnah Card

Sleepovers are not only an integral part of most children's lives, they are also a source of drama and a marker of growth. What happens on sleepovers can be more life-altering than anything that happens at school. The following books peek into sleepover merriment, anxiety, and contretemps, as well as party planning. We've even thrown in one of the many compilations of scary stories just right for telling on pajama party nights.
