Buggy has loved reading since she’s learned how and Buddy just recently took an interest in it (over the summer). When I have the opportunity to review a children’s book, I jump at it.
It gives Buggy the opportunity to read it on her own. Buddy usually has her read it to him and then I usually read it again (a few times) to Buddy.
This time was no different!
A wonderful fairy tale about friendship and happiness:
“PRINCESS SOPHIA AND THE FROG is about a little princess named Sophia and her new friend the frog, Sophia was bored so the frog convinces her to give him a kiss and dance with him so that together, they can take adventures. This isn’t just your typical fairy tale because it’s more about friendship and happiness than love. It’s a new kind of princess story that takes an old tale and puts a new spin on it. The way it’s written is so fun because it rhymes and the words go from normal to big. It’s just such a perfect children’s book. My little one loves the illustrations and I think that she also really enjoys how colorful it is.” (Thank you Marianna!)
On her adventure Sophia learns about feelings. She also learns that she can choose what mood she surrounds herself with, as this will impact her own.
After her return to the castle she realizes that all she needs to be happy is to be surrounded by good friends.
Buggy really enjoyed reading this book. She herself stated that she was surprised because the frog didn’t do what he was supposed to do. She figured a princess and a frog were supposed to kiss and then the frog would turn into a prince, but that’s not what happens in Princess Sophia and the Frog.
In all honesty, I thought that was what was going to happen too. That’s how all princess and frog stories go, right?
Not this one.
I really did like this book and so did both kids. It was different, it rhymed, and it was cute!
