Fun Book Ideas for Sleepover Parties
National Geographic Kids Personality Quizzes (ages 8-12, $9.99)
What’s your shark superpower? What kind of friend are you?
From weird and wacky (What stinky animal are you?) to thought-provoking and informative (What kind of explorer should you be? Which mountain should you climb?), there’s a personality profile for everyone in this unique book. Inside you’ll find all kinds of quizzes: flow charts, multiple-choice, this or that, and more, and while you’re at it, get to know about unique animals, places, cultures, and even careers worldwide!
Don’t Read This Book Before Bed: Thrills, Chills and Hauntingly True Stories (ages 8-12, $14.99)
Do aliens fill you with fright? Maybe you shouldn’t read about the Wow! Signal, an unsettling radio signal once received from space — or the mass UFO sighting in Belgium in the 1980s. If you love a good mystery, check out the creepy Flying Dutchman, a ghost ship people have reported seeing since the 1600s — the appearance of which means a disaster is about to strike.
Glowing fireballs, underground ghost towns, zombie ants, and the ghosts of Flight 401 are just some of the stories in this 144-page volume that will have kids sleeping with the nightlight on! For the faint of heart, a helpful Fight-o-meter accompanies each spread and rates each story for its level of scariness.
Critter Chat: What if Animals Used Social Media? (ages 8-12, $9.99)
If animals could speak (and text and post selfies and review items on Amazon), what would they say? Find out in this hilarious collection of imagined digital encounters based on real animal intel and facts.
A lion (screenname: Just_Lion_Around) declares his territory in the African savanna with a text-based ROAR! Meanwhile, zebra and cheetah send eye-roll emojis. In the North American suburbs, a carpet beetle texts the family dog, reassuring him that his humans will return―eventually.
Among surprising, laugh-out-loud conversations like these, you’ll find many parody social media posts from all your favorites in the animal kingdom, including Instagram-style inspirational posts and silly Yelp-like reviews on “Yowl.” An adorable dumbo octopus posts a selfie (#FeelingCute). And a frustrated narwhal reviews an extra-long toothbrush on “Llamazon.” (It’s still too short―of course!).
Cutest Animals on the Planet (ages 8-12, $9.99)
Whether you like mammals, aquatic creatures, insects, birds, amphibians, or reptiles, these animals’ favorites would ALL be contenders for the grand prize in a cutie competition.
From hedgehogs and pandas to tapirs, kakapos, and pangolins, big photos of all the “cuties” pair with upbeat descriptions highlighting each critter’s crazy cool skills and unique behaviors.
Girls Can! Smash Stereotypes, Defy Expectations, and Make History (ages 9-14, $14.99)
