Millie Fierce Sleeps Out

Staff Review: Millie Fierce Sleeps Out

"Millie Fierce Sleeps Out" by Jane Manning

Cover: 'Millie Fierce Sleeps Out'


Millie has been fierce-free all summer so her mother agrees to let her have a sleep-out in a tent in the backyard with her friends. Of course all does not go smoothly during her sleep-out, and Millie needs to often force herself to control her fierceness until it is absolutely necessary to frighten off a scary dog.  Colorfully and humorously illustrated, this picture book demonstrates the importance of self-control in an understandable way for this age group.

Audience: Children | Genre: Fiction, Picture Book, Read-Alouds
