Review: Oh Susannah: Things That Go Bump: An Oh Susannah Story by:Carole P. Roman

 Oh Susannah: Things That Go Bump: An Oh Susannah Story
About the Book:
Susannah Maya Logan is not having a good day. She doesn't want to go to her best friend, Lola's sleepover. Susannah thinks the house is big and spooky, not to mention the ghost that is said to live there. Lola's big brother, Kai, loves to tease Susannah with scary stories.

Throughout her day, she sees people deal with things that scare them. Her sight-impaired friend, Macy, is terrified of unicorns, of all things. She sees a boy at a party who's frightened of clowns. Her teacher is afraid of getting a cold. Susannah realizes everybody is scared of something. She wishes she was more like Lola, who is not afraid of anything, or so it seems.

Susannah discovers people have different ideas of what is scary and what is not, and only they can determine the difference.

Join Susannah as she learns to confront her fears and not let her imagination prevent her from having fun.


My Review:
 Susannah is all set to go to her best friends sleepover except she is terrified of all things. I could totally relate to this because I was that girl. I have always been a fraidy cat. Susannah soon starts to hear from others around about all the things they are scared of and she realizes that we all are a little afraid of something and thats okay --but it shouldn't stop us from having fun. Carole Roman always finds fantastic things to write about this book is just another example of her talent. Written for elementary aged children this book is a hit!
