Wells, Rosemary, Sophie’s Terrible Twos. Viking Press, 2014. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK.
Today Sophie is 2, but she woke up on the wrong side of the crib. Nothing is right for her: her birthday dress, pancakes, or fairy wings. She’s a truly terrible 2 today. When Granny comes to visit, will she be able to get Sophie out of her stoop?
The pictures are well-done and complement the text well. The story is simple enough to keep the attention of the intended audience, but engaging and developed enough to keep the adult reading it aloud interested as well. A great addition to Rosemary Wells’ book repertoire. Recommended for most libraries. PReK only. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
