    1. I loved, loved, LOVED, this book as a kid! I recently found a copy at a library sale and read it again and, guess what? I still love, love, LOVE it!

Ira's first ever!Everything is great until Ira's sister asks him if he's going to take his teddy. Ira says that of course he's not taking his te [...]

    2. This story and its pictures work in wonderful concert together. I loved them both. This book is utterly charming, funny, and sweet. It really gets parent-child, sibling, and child friendship relationships. It’s just adorable. And I think it’s wonderful to read one to one or to groups, for independent readers too, just for fun or when there is any issue of peer pressure, and it’s an ideal book to read before a first or any fraught with anxiety sleepover. It’s also a wonderful book for fan [...]

    3. I remember my grandmother reading Ira Sleeps Over to me as a child and I wanted to read it again because I had honestly forgotten what it was about. After reading this book again today I remember why she liked it so much. Although this book seems just a little outdated by today’s standards, it’s still a fun story with a cute message. I think this book would be appropriate to read to any child who may be nervous about attending their first sleepover. I think a lot of children reach a point in [...]

    4. My daughter and I read this book last night (we've read it a few times before, too), and I read it years ago as an older child. My parents actually gave the book to my brother when he turned three, and there, inside the front cover, is a very sweet inscription. This book is about -- among other things -- the teasing that big sisters can inflict on little brothers (which neither I nor my brother know anything about), and the struggles between growing up and holding on to childhood comforts. As an [...]

    5. This wasn't terrible. It just, well, lacked likableness. All day a boy goes back and forth about taking his teddy bear with him to his friend's house that night. His sister taunts him, his parents say to take it. And in the end he discovers his friend sleeps with a teddy bear too.Ages 4+Cleanliness: children mention doing magic tricks. Children tell ghost stories at night. An older sister taunts her brother about needing to sleep with a teddy bear and he denies that he needs it to feel safe.

    6. Text to SelfThere have been several times in my life when I was embarrassed and felt as though I didn't fit in. This story reminds me so much of myself when I was a little girl. Ira who's going to a sleepover wants to take his teddy bear to a sleep over but, doesn't know what the other kids will think of him. As a little girl, I was always judged for being dark skinned and didn't quite understand why people judged others for many things. This is a great book to use as a teaching tool for both te [...]

    7. "Ira Sleeps Over" is a cute book about a little boy who is excited to sleep over at his friend, Reggie's, house for the very first time. His only problem is, he's not sure if he should bring his teddy bear because he doesn't know how Reggie will feel about it. His sister of course is being hard on him and saying that Reggie will make fun and call him a baby, while his parents are saying the opposite. In the end, Ira goes over without his bear, but later after telling scary stories Reggie gets ou [...]

    8. On a whim, I pulled this book off the shelf to read to 2nd grade. I hadn't read it in years and years, and I'm not even sure why it came to mind, but I am happy to say that I was surprised at how much the kids enjoyed it. They paid close attention, got a little exasperated at the way Ira kept changing his mind about taking his teddy bear to Reggie's house (I kept hearing little sighs and comments like, "Just take it!"), and openly shared about the stuffed animal(s) they sleep with. I had a lot o [...]

    11. This is a great story to prepare youngsters for their first sleepover. Although our girls are still too young for it, I like that Ira's first sleepover is just next door, so he is able to go home if need arises.

Overall, it's a great story to read aloud to children, especially at bedtime.

This book can help to instill courage in students. Grades K-4

    17. This story really struck home because it reminded me of my daughter. I read it to her because she, too, has an attachment to a stuffed animal. This story was really interesting and is great for 6-7 year old kids. This is a wonderful story with great illustrations. I loved it.

    23. I observed my CT use this book in a lesson about opinion writing and I was surprised how engaged my second graders were. This book was originally published in 1975, but children today can still connect to Ira's dilemma. I would recommend this for 1st-3rd graders, and I encourage teachers to consider using it for an opinion writing prompt.

    24. No matter our age, human beings have a want and need to be accepted by their peers. Often questioning if something is too childish or “uncool” for that age group or social level, we change to ourselves to better fit in with our friends/peers. Packing childhood into boxes hidden in the backs of closets as adults, we leave childhood intact at home in our journey to college, hiding our action figures and dolls in adolescence and as children young we question whether or not to bring out teddy be [...]

    26. Having never been to a sleepover before Ira was invited to his friend Reggie's house for just that. Ira had one problem that his sister brought up, whether or not to bring the teddy bear along because he had never had a night without it. He tried hard at first not to worry about it but like any child who slept with a teddy bear he was having conflicting ideas about leaving it behind.
