Book: Sophie's Squash Go To School
By: Pat Zietlow Miller and Illustrated by Anne Wilsdorf
On sale: Schwartz & Wade Books June 28, 2016
I have to say that the kiddo is enjoying all these books from Random House Children's Books and I am as well. When I was her age, I do not remember a whole lot of fun and colorful books like they have nowadays.
What is Sophie's Squash Go to School about? First, this book is a sequel to Sophie's Squash. Do you have to read Sophie's Squash to follow along? Of course not. This story is about a little girl named Sophie who is starting school and like most kiddos, Sophie has those wicked first day jitters. Sophie's only friends are Bonnie and Baxter (who are they? Well you will have to read the book to find out) and she isn't interested in making new friends. But will she? Will she stay loyal to her two best friends? Will she make new friends? Will she learn any important lessons? I don't want to ruin it for you or your kiddos so you will have to check it out when it becomes available for purchase on June 28, 2016.
I will tell you, my kiddo really enjoyed it. She loves books with short paragraphs and big beautiful crisp pictures. This book covers both of those requirements. She stumbled on a few words but was able to read the story and understand what was going on and understood all about Sophie.
