Love, Sophia on the Moon

Life on Earth isn't always fair, so Sophia runs off to the moon, where there are no bedtimes, no time-outs, and no Mom. But as Sophia and her mom send letters to each other, Mom has a clever comeback for all of Sophia's angry notes. Home starts to sound not-quite-so-bad, especially when Mom reports that someone from the moon has moved in to Sophia's old room, they're having spaghetti for dinner, and they're reading Sophia's favorite story at bedtime.

A through line of unconditional love underscored with lots of humor and imagination makes this picture book a stellar pick for storytime. Kids will relate to Sophia's frustration, and her wise mother's responses show that, sometimes, you need to meet someone you love where they are. Charming and sweet, this book is a reminder that parents (sometimes literally) love their children to the moon... and back home.

"Related exclusively in the series of letters between Sophia and her mom, this is a gentle, even adorable reminder for children that their parent still loves them even if they yell. Song’s illustrations, figures drawn with her characteristically thick, smudgy black line, add a bounty of extra details to the story, especially in the pictures of Sophia’s mom at home, with glimpses into Sophia’s room. The gentle, pastel colors of the moon add to the sweetness of this mother-daughter reconciliation story." — Kirkus Reviews
