I read this with my 6 and 3 year olds before bedtime. This sweet story for early readers of chapter books shows that wishes can come true, but not always in the way you expect. Sophie lives in a tall, tall building overlooking a city park. In the middle of the park is an amazing pet store named the Ark in the Park, run by Mr. and Mrs. Noah. While Sophie dreams impossible dreams of owning a pet and having cousins and grandparents, the childless Noahs long for grandchildren. Their wishes come true when Sophie asks to visit the pet store for a treat on her seventh birthday, and the Noahs take her under their wing. Young animal lovers will especially enjoy the desriptions of the seven-level pet shop.
