‘Sophie Sleeps Over’ written and illustrated by Marisabina Russo is a nice children story about young bunny named Sophie who for the first time plan to sleepover in her friend’s home. But things will go in a different direction than expected…

Marisabina Russo with this story, although at first glance seems simple, raises a question of familiar dilemma that occurs even in young children, and then usually goes through the whole youth - can someone have two best friends.

Sophie eagerly anticipates her first sleepover at her friend Olive's house. But once she arrives there, she is surprised to find that Olive has another guest, Penelope. Both girls are confused because they aren't sure that it is possible for Olive to have two best friends. At first it seems as though Penelope and Sophie are going to be at cross-purposes, but eventually they find some common ground. I like how this picture book with its simple illustrations addresses a common problem that childre...more

Students will make many connections about the first sleepover and the anxiety that it can create for young people. An interesting way to talk about friendships and how to solve issues with friends. The topic could spark a lively debate about friendships. :)
Sophie is excited about her first slumber party, but struggles with whether she should go home when she meets her best friend Olivia's other best friend. The trio work through jealousy struggles and during different activities place each other in the odd man out role. In the middle of then night, though, Sophie and Olivia bond over their slumber party anxieties and walk away from the weekend with a new friend.

Realistic kid drama is combined with gouache artwork in the recommended read for PreK-2...more

Sophie is invited to her best friend's birthday party and it is a sleepover. Not only will this be Sophie's first sleepover, she meets the other best friend. Everything woks out and three is not a crowd. Illustrations in gouache paint.
Too long for story time, but might be helpful for older kids needing advice on friendship, and feeling jealous of other kids who their friends are friends with.
Sophie sleeps over at Olive's house. It's Olive's birthday party and she has another best friend there. Sophie has a tough time at her first sleepover.
Delightful. This book covers both the first sleep over issues and the best friend dilemma with charm and humor.
Edward Sullivan
Sophie learns that there's no such thing as too many best friends.
This is a good book to read to a child who maybe is going to her first sleepover or who had a rough experience at one. The bunnies in this book have a hard time being friendly with each other because each feels that they are Sophie's best friend. In the end, they decide that they can all be friends and that they can accept each other. It is a longer book, but it has a nice message that can be portrayed when needed to a girl in this situation.
