Sweet Story for Little Ones

If you could sum up Sophie's Snail in three words, what would they be?

sweet, caring, relatable

What did you like best about this story?

Each of the six chapters is a different story (loosely related to the others) about a 4 year old girl who loves animals (even woodlice). My kids (ages 5, 5, and 3) could relate to her character. What I like best about the book is that it is wholesome fun.

Book one! And precious!

Would you listen to Sophie's Snail again? Why?

Sophie has been introduced and there is a whole series from age 5 to age 7. She is smart as a whip and incredibly silly! She has mixed up words and she gets involved in all things 'animal'.

I live Sophie! She is most of us as little girls. She is so determined to be a Lady Farmer that one can't imagine any other result for Sophie's grown up years. She is brilliant!

Plan to giggle and giggle!

Audible? Could you put these books in a series for us readers? It sure would help!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sophie's Snail?

'And I'll have a small patch of corn.'
'Corn?! What for?'
'For cornflakes! What's wrong with you? Don't they teach you anything?'

- Tina "I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel."
