It's tough being in third grade and wanting to prove to the whole school that you are worthy of their praise. Sophie takes the challenge head on to prove that she is a hero that deserves constant recognition and attention. Multiple hijinks ensue and she endangers many children and adults in order to prove that she is "Sophie the Hero", a wonder girl of sorts who does not just save slinkies but also kindergarteners.

It's okay.

The books isn't terrible in of itself, but I was a little annoyed by Sop

Sophie's adventures continue... And she just seems to be getting more and more delusional. I'm curious what my students will think of this, if they'll think she thinks like them and enjoy it or if they'll think it's as ridiculous as I think it is.

The most ridiculous: the only tissues in a 3rd grade classroom are inside a drawer in the teacher's desk. In my real-life 3rd grade classroom, we have two boxes of tissues out on separate sides of the classroom and end up having to replace them

I read these in the wrong order--Sophie the Chatterbox first, then Sophie the Hero, and I swear I have Sophie the Awesome too but I can't find it. But I think I get the gist. Sophie is cute, she's trying very hard to stand out as a third grader, but she's trying too hard and it's not making her any more likeable. A struggle for most people, I think. Girls will find Sophie relatable, although hopefully they will realize that one doesn't always have to try so hard.

Story is OK, but nothing outstanding. We like Barbara Parks' Junie B. Jones series much more than the Sophie books, if this one is good representation.
I support independent bookstores. You can use this link to find one near you:
