I received a copy of “Sophie’s Squash Go To School” ($17.99 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Sophie is having a hard time making new friends when going to school for the first time. Especially when the new friends are not squash like her best friends, Bonnie and Baxter. No new school friend seems to compare to Bonnie and Baxter…not even Steven Green who sits by Sophie at circle time, plays with Sophie during recess and watches Sophie paint. Will Sophie finally make a new friend? Will Sophie’s best friends last forever?
Sophie’s Squash Go To School is a great learning tool for those little ones just beginning school for the first time and learn about letting go and making new friends….but also realizing everything takes time.
Sophie’s Squash Go To School can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble any anywhere children’s books are sold.
