ANOTHER Review of Carole P. Roman Books

Oh Susannah Book Series

ANOTHER Review of Carole P. Roman Books

I did the first Carole P. Roman review on our site, and honestly, I’ve loved her books for years.  Because of this, I was really excited to do another Carole P. Roman review (and receive additional books).

For this review I received Carole’s Oh Susannah collection of books as well as most of her Bed Time Story Books.


The Oh Susannah series is an early reader series. Oh Susannah: It’s in the bag has nine chapters and 34 pages while Things That Go Bump has ten chapters and 44 pages. These are perfect little books for young, starting-out readers.  My daughter and I both liked the short chapters – and my daughter felt so confident when she finished a book!


Oh Susannah: It’s in the bagIn this book, Susannah stuffs her problems into her backpack rather than dealing with them (sound familiar?)  But how much can her backpack hold? Will she be able to confront her worries before the backpack bursts?  Or will she continue to hide them away?

Oh Susannah: Things That Go Bump – In this book, Susannah realizes everyone is scared of something. Susannah learns to confront her fears and not let her imagination prevent her from having fun.

The Oh Susannah Color With Me book is my absolute favorite!  It’s a coloring book that goes along with Oh Susannah: It’s in the bag, and contains questions throughout.  Plus, there are blank pages for your child to draw on.  The coloring pages go along with the book, but they’re also open ended – so in addition to following the book, my daughter made up entirely new stories to go along with each/every coloring page.  This is such a unique book, and so interactive – I’m very impressed.


The Bed Time Story Books are beautifully illustrated (very soothing/relaxing pictures – perfect for bed time) and they are wonderfully poetic.


From Rocket-Bye (as the kids are riding their space ship through the galaxy) –

The cities shrink; the lights grow dim. The mountains looks so small.  The Milky Way beckons us closer, so we travel to its call.

We love the constellations, the way they fill the skies, the crazy quilt of a universe is spread before our eyes.

We bounce; we coast; we loop-de-loop through our galaxy to explore, yet somehow, we end each flight at home, safe in bed, the only sound…a gentle snore.

From Can a Princess Be a Firefighter?

You can be anything you want to be, anywhere, place, or time.  Dancer, dentist, cowpoke, reporter, painter, biologist, accountant, or mime.

Astronaut, farmer, teacher, mom, just to name a few.  Hmmm, with so many great opportunities, did it ever occur that you could do two?

So my, dear, whatever you pick, whatever you choose to be, know that in my true heart, you will always be a princess to me.

One to Ten Squirrel’s Bad Day is a life lesson book – about how nothing is as bad as it seems.  The book tells kids that once they identify and realize the true importance of an issue (using the 1-10 scale), something that seems absolutely horrible, may not be really as bad as it first seems.

In the even that something happens, and you feel your world fly apart, recall this conversation; remember the one to ten chart. 

When you have a problem, whether it’s big or small, think of a number to rate it, maybe it won’t bother you at all.

Once you get a number (and please be honest about it too), the problem doesn’t feel so big, and somehow you’ll know what to do.

Moms, Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas – you’ll all want these books!
