Just in Time for New Year's!
By Karen Gray Ruelle
Emily and her brother Harry are determined to stay up until midnight on New Year’s Eve. Their parents agree to let them, if they can keep themselves awake. Emily and Harry have three days before New Year’s so they practice staying up later, but that only makes them more tired. On New Year’s Eve, Emily and Harry help ready the celebration by getting noisemakers, party hats, bubbly drinks and practicing the countdown. But by 9 p.m., they’re both getting sleepy and have to devise ingenious ways to stay up.
This early chapter book will appeal to children who want to stay up late on New Year’s Eve, and give some comfort to any disappointed children who fall asleep before the clock strikes midnight. The illustrations are great fun, particularly the depictions of the siblings’ attempts to stay awake with board games, alarm clocks and by counting stars.Check Availability
