PreS-Gr 2–A touching story about a girl and her dad at bedtime. Sophia, with brown skin and pigtails, asks for a story—but she continues to make suggestions and changes as her daddy makes it up. Each page is a retelling of the same story with all of Sophia’s changes and additions. The relationship between the girl and her father is sweet, as he patiently changes the story to match her imagination. Smietanka’s illustrations for the story being told are colorful and fun, while Sophia and her dad remain in every picture as well. Details in the images add to the excitement and imaginative quality of the story.
VERDICT Any child who enjoys a bedtime story will love this imaginative tale spun by Sophia and her dad.
