One Word From Sophia

Sophia has one true desire for her birthday -- a pet giraffe. But she has Four Big Problems in the way: Mom (a judge), Dad (a businessman), Uncle Conrad (a politician)...and Grand-mama (a strict disciplinarian). Will her presentations, proposals, and pie charts convince them otherwise? Turns out, all it takes is one word.

"[Sophia] gives each member of her biracial family an individualized presentation including visuals and supporting material, but each one says no and critiques her presentation as being too wordy. In a last ditch attempt, Sophia does a group presentation of one word ("Please!"), accompanied by a compelling pair of pleading eyes. This effort garners (surprise!) success, so she follows it up with two equally important words — "Thank you!" Averbeck's text is a fun take on kindergarten meets the board of directors." — Catherine Callegari, School Library Journal
