Caruso is afraid to fly.
And that's a big problem.
Because he is a bird. One night
a wild gust of wind
blows Caruso
off his perch
and across
the stormy sky to
Sophie's window.
Who is Sophie?

Sometimes, just like Caruso,
you will find a friend
when you least expect it.
And sometimes a
wonderful friendship
can make you want to try
something you didn't think
you could do.

Sophie's Window is the cutest book. It is a great book about friendship and learning to do something new and scary. Learning how to fly was the one thing Caruso did not want to try because he was scared. Once he was blown away, he found a new friend, which helped him find home again. Caruso wanted to see Sophie again so he tried really hard, harder, and he tried his hardest to fly, and guess what? HE DID IT!
Caruso the pigeon needs to learn how to fly. He's terrified. What if he falls down splat? What if he gets lost? Then one night the howling wind wakes him up and carries him off. He suddenly lands on a ledge and notices a friendly face looking at him. It's Sophie, the dog. Together they figure out how to get Caruso home. And when Caruso finally learns to fly he visits Sophie as often as he can.
Deborah Harris

This was a sweet book about growing up, trying new things, being brave and friendship. I think Jenna liked it; I don't think she loved it.
With enough motivation and the kindness of a friend, a little city pigeon learns how to fly
