Caitlin’s Party by Katie Lang-Slattery is an enjoyable and entertaining story about Caitlin, who is helping her mom and the other camp staff get ready to close Camp Whispering Pines for the summer. She is not ready to say goodbye to everyone yet and decides to help with their end-of-the-season chores so they can have a party together before going their separate ways. She convinces her mom, the counselors, and other staff to come to the party, where there will be food and games. She works hard to get everything prepared in time so everyone can have a great final evening before saying goodbye for the summer. Katie Lang-Slattery created a very heartwarming story in Caitlin’s Party.

Caitlin’s Party is a super great book for young readers! I loved seeing the cute illustrations sprinkled throughout the pages as Caitlin went around the camp to help with the various jobs that needed to be done. She was a sweet protagonist who worked really hard to make those around her happy on their last night at camp. I enjoyed seeing the dynamic she had with the other staff members play out on the pages, and although she was much younger than everyone else, she was still treated as one of them. Katie Lang-Slattery did a wonderful job portraying what goes on after summer camps end, which I feel is not often seen in children's and young adult books with a camp as the setting. Caitlin’s Party was a fun and quick read that I would recommend to elementary school children.
