Praise For…

Praise for Ten Kisses for Sophie:

"Wells' signature style emanates a warmth and earnestness, perfectly depicting Sophie's emotions and Granny's tender response. She takes her exquisitely detailed patterns, fabrics, and textures to a new level, offering a fresh vision in a digital-heavy world. A successful counting book whose celebration of intergenerational relationships sets it apart." —Kirkus

"Wells gets to the heart of childhood worry in this Sophie tale. Sure to be popular." —School Library Journal

"From the likable main character to the happy ending, the fourth book in the Sophie series is a satisfying choice for young children." —Booklist

"Wells again demonstrates that she has her finger on the preschool/primary-grade pulse with this installment in the Sophie series, as many a youngster will heartily sympathize with Sophie and will relate to both her love for the fancy treats and her anxiety that she may be denied one. Descriptive, specific language provides both piquancy and wry amusement, and Sophie’s problem-solving methodology could also provide a math lesson about one-to-one correspondence. The cheerful ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations are executed with Wells’ usual style and flair, and Sophie and her rodent relations are endearing and expressive figures." —BCCB

"This is a fun book for the littlest ones." —School Library Connection
