And that's a big problem.
Because he is a bird.

One night
a wild gust of wind
blows Caruso
off his perch

Sophie's window.
Who is Sophie?

Sometimes, just like Caruso,
you will find a friend
when you least expect it.
And sometimes a

something you didn't think
you could do.

Sophie's Window is about a little bird named Caruso who can't fly. Every time he looks down from his perch on his tall building, Caruso just knows he'll fall with a great SPLAT! One night though, the wind picked up and started howling, so Caruso went to go look. That's when the wind lifted Caruso up into the air and then down to a windowsill. Not sure where he was, a friendly looking dog poked her head out the window. Her name was Sophie, and she wanted to know why Caruso was there. Caruso told ...more
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.

Caruso in a young bird who does not know how to fly. He is blown out of his nest in a storm and has to find his way home. He finds a friend in Sophie a dog who helps Caruso find his way home. The text uses onomatopoeias and uniquely written text to help tell the story.

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.
