One Word from Sophia [hc]
Written by Jim Averbeck & illustrated by Yasmeen Ismail
Sophia tries varied techniques to get the giraffe she wants more than anything in this playfully illustrated story about the nuances of negotiation.
Sophia has one true desire for her birthday. But she has Four Big Problems in the way: Mom, Dad, Uncle Conrad... and Grand-mama. Will her presentations, proposals, and pie charts convince them otherwise? Turns out, all it takes is one word. 40 pages
"From the first page to the last, Sophia’s energy, creativity, and innovative critical thinking will entertain both adults and children... A must-read- for pet lovers and even for those not yet convinced." -Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review (Ages 4-8)
