Sophie's Animal Parade - Children's Book #Review! #SophiesAnimalParade

From award-winning illustrator, Katia Wish, and author of Marathon Mouse, Amy Dixon, comes SOPHIE’S ANIMAL PARADE, an imaginative picture book that teaches kids about being creative. Reminiscent of Harold and the Purple Crayon, children are sure to laugh at the goofy scenarios Sophie and her animal friends find themselves in.

Mama calls it Sophie’s imagination, but Sophie calls it magic. Everything Sophie draws comes to life, and one day when Sophie feels lonely, she decides to draw a friend. But the polar bear cub isn’t very happy in Sophie’s room, where it is much too warm. So Sophie tries again. But the duck wants to swim in a pool full of water. And the giraffe is too tall for the tiny room! It isn’t long after the elephant shows up that things begin to get a little too wild and Sophie must demand that everyone go outside. In the backyard, with all her new friends, Sophie meets someone new—someone who happens to be an expert lion trainer. It looks like Sophie’s magic may have worked after all.

Featuring a charming crew of animals and two children who believe in magic, this sweet and funny picture book teaches children to combat loneliness with creativity, persistence, and a little imagination. Filled with the lovely watercolor illustrations of Katia Wish, Amy Dixon’s Sophie’s Animal Parade takes children on a journey toward friendship.

My Review:
I am really grateful that none of us has the power to draw things and have them come to life. Boy what a mess! This world would be a disaster, and then some! But in "Sophie's Animal Parade" the sweet, kind hearted Sophie's imagination and innocence is adorable and silly. Then Sophie meets a boy! And the real magic of human interaction begins! And so does drawing everything in twos for her new friend! This adorable book let's children's imagination run wild, but it also shows them that playing with real people can be fun too!
