The illustrations in this are great, and most kids can relate pretty well to Sophie. I found, however, that while they relate to Sophie's temper tantrum at the beginning of the book, Sophie's solution to it -- to run into the woods and be alone for a while -- doesn't really scan with West Philadelphia preschoolers. They honestly don't seem to get it. Probably if Sophie went up to her room to be alone or hid in her closet or something, it would make more sense to them...

Kimberly Not every child can relate to every book, I agree. I have read this book to many children in many classrooms, though, and they all loved it.
