Imagine spending your birthday at the museum! Join Mason and his friends on their scavenger hunt through all the exhibits that make any natural history museum so special. The perfect birthday gift for museum lovers and adventure-seekers alike!  

Mason couldn't wait to celebrate his birthday with a sleepover at the museum of natural history--his favorite place to visit. 

Armed with headlamps for the dark hallways, a map, and a list of clues, Mason and his two best friends take off on a scavenger hunt through each hall of the museum. But they aren't just trying to solve the clues. They're scouting for the best place to spend the night. 

Sleeping next to a T. rex in the Hall of Dinosaurs felt too scary. And sleeping with the monarch butterflies would probably tickle. This decision isn't as easy as Mason thought it would be.... 

Wherever they end up, the museum at night is the best place for a birthday adventure!

Mason, along with his parents and two best friends, is spending his birthday by having a sleepover at the museum! Clues take Mason and his friends through each exciting part of the museum as they try to decide just where to spend the night. 

Sleepover at the Museum is a fun and delightful picture book! Karen LeFrak’s engaging storytelling will thrill little readers as they excitedly join Mason on his museum adventures. Through crafty, clever clues, LeFrak wonderfully lays out the museum and introduces readers to so many fascinating topics, from dinosaurs to geology, butterflies, the ocean, and more! David Bucs bright, lively illustrations perfectly bring the museum to life and capture all the fun Mason and his friends are having. Little readers will enjoy pouring over each page and spotting all the cool details.  

My five-year-old niece is in love with this book and, since first reading it, has talked non-stop about visiting a museum. Sleepover at the Museum is sure to entertain, excite, and educate little readers everywhere!
