I received this book to review in exchange for an honest review. This in no way had any impact on the review.

When I first received the email to review this book, I almost deleted it before I looked over at my daughter and thought: ‘okay, it’s a kids book. I have a kid now, lets go ahead and give this a shot’. I know the earlier you start reading to kids the better, but the books that reside on my shelves aren’t really ‘kid material’ and while I have a few I have started reading to her (Harry Pot

One of the greatest Christmas traditions in this era is the ugly sweater contest that most families, friends and co-workers host. But what about the sweater have you ever thought how they feel about being called ugly. Well Cassi tackles this subject and many more when we are taken into the world in which Sophie lives.

Sophie is a sweater who is learning that life can be difficult and unkind sometimes. She is also learning with the help of others that how you deal with life's hardship is very impo

A soft adventure with a lot of feelings expressed

The term “ugly sweater” is actually a harsh euphemism for more nice-sounding terms such as “unique” or “unusual” or “custom designed” sweater. This story is told from the perspective of a sweater that was manufactured to be a bit unusual but was then purchased by a woman with an idea to make the most “unique” sweater in the world.
The sweater’s name is Sophie and she was purchased by a woman named Katie. Sophie is a bright and sensitive “girl”

One little Christmas sweater decided to write a diary about her journey from the factory to her forever home. Along the way she learns a lot about friends, family, and the power of positive thinking. Like the sweater, this book is more then it seems it is filled with great tips for motivation, positive, thinking, self-worth, love, forgiveness, dreams, and family. A big theme throughout this book is the importance of loving yourself for who you are no matter what others think of you. Some readers ...more

Given To Me For An Honest Review

Diary of an Ugly Sweater by Cassi Eubank is written by Sophie. Sophie is a Christmas sweater and she writes the book in diary form. All that Sophie feels and wonders is exactly how kids and adults feel. There is great advice and tools that kids can use as they try to fit in at school and in life. It teaches how to be confident and deal with others in a positive way. This book was so much fun to read. Once you begin reading it, you won't be able to put it down unti

I received this book for the purpose of a fair review.

Likes: The idea of reading diary entries seems like a great way to encourage children to keep a journal or diary themselves.

Dislikes: Some of the encouragement sections here got t

This is a delightful book that will enchant its young readers. I loved the fact that it was written in diary form from the viewpoint of the sweater, names Sophie. Many children are encourage to keep journals and diaries and this is a wonderful example they can emulate.

The characters are wonderful. They are well developed and I think they make great role models. The plot moves along at a cracking pace and is certainly a page turner.

I highly recommend it to any young reader and suggest parents gr

I have read books from many different perspectives. This is the first time I’ve read a book told from the perspective of a sweater. That made this book very interesting. Sophie is the sweater’s name and she is a Christmas sweater. Her story is told in diary form. The beginning is charming. She describes her family as the “Tree with Pom Balls” family. She is a sweater with a Christmas tree on the front and pom poms that decorate it like ornaments. She refers to other sweater families such as the ...more

I received this book as a GoodReads FirstReads Giveaway book. I appreciate the 'thought' behind what the author had in mind. And the little bit of the story I read there were very impressive thoughts that teach a lesson to pre-teens to adults. However the story itself in between these thoughts wasn't such that it kept my attention. My 'rule of thumb' is to read the first 100 pages or first 5 chapters before I give up on a book. And this unfortunately was one of those books I just couldn't finish ...more
