My girls (ages 3 and 6) have been in love with the new Sofia the First Series on Disney Junior since it came out. We were thrilled to see that they were starting to release some paperback books and we pre-ordered the first three books (The Royal Slumber Party, Sofia Makes a Friend and Welcome to Royal Prep) as soon as we could. They arrived a day before the release date from Amazon and we read all three of them that night as a family for their bedtime stories. They were all a big hit. We have already pre-ordered several more that will be released over the next few months.
"Welcome to Royal Prep" is a nice story with a lesson. All the children at Royal Prep Academy are preparing for their school's open house. They practice singing and dancing and they pick out their best artwork to display. Everything is going great until James accidentally spills paint on Amber's favorite picture. James tries to hide the mistake but Sofia convinces him to tell the truth. In the end, everything works out great with a happy ending to the story and the children learn a valuable lesson about telling the truth. The inside back cover of the book has a fitting "Princess Lesson" that states "A true princess always tells the truth."
Overall, this is a really nice book with great artwork on high quality glossy paper. It has a nice happy ending and teaches a valuable lesson. It is an easy level 1 reader that will be a confident read for your child. I always like to ask my girls what they thought about the story. My 6 year old said "That was so good" after the story was done and her favorite part was "when amber made a new painting" at the end. She also said the funniest part was "when James' painting looked awful" and she learned "if you always tell the truth, you won't get in trouble." My 3 year old said during the story, "That's so sweet" and her favorite part was when "James ruined Amber's painting." As you can probably tell, my youngest is the mischievous one of the family. My girls were very excited when we brought the book out and they really enjoyed it. As a parent, I appreciate how this book and TV Series has fun and positive storylines with great lessons for your children. This book makes a great addition to our storybook collection and will make an easy level 1 reader for both girls. Highly Recommended!
We just did a spring showcase of my granddaughters local park dancers with the music from Sofia. My great-granddaughters and I watch the show together. I got this in the mail on June 4th and when my soon to be 6 great-granddaughter came to visit yesterday she dived right into the book. This is the perfect book and show for the little princess in your life. The show and books are all about an average little girl named Sofia whose mom married a king. Sofia ia a humble , sweet little girl and soon teaches life lesson's to her spoiled step sibliongs. Sofia is a little girl with a big heart!
Bought for my 4 year old grand daughter who is beginning to read. She loves Princess Sophia and finding a book with text she can "read" is fantastic. American spelling is unfortunate. I have also bought books with Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Doc McStuffins. These books are more in keeping with her interests than any other early reader books I have found!
Bought as a starting school gift for a Sophia fan. She was delighted with this book. It is a simple story with word repetition and nicely illustrated so she can follow it easily and I'm sure she will be reading it herself soon. I liked the fact it had a simple moral lesson at the end about not telling lies
My just-turned-3 year old daughter absolutely LOVES Sofia the First and these little "World of Reading" Sofia the First books are wonderful. The pages have a very nice, shiny finish and the illustrations are beautiful, especially for such a low price! We have several of these little books and she pulls them all out regularly to "read" them.
I have bought many Sofia books for my granddaughter . She loves anything Sofia because she is so sweet and little. She will be four in September and it is great shopping on line because I find everything I am looking for on Seasonality with free shipping on prime..
Excellent book and age appropriate for a Kindergartener that is ready to take the next step in reading. Pages are nice are stroing not like the cheap recycled "tissue paper" book that are coming out there these days.
My daughter loves Sofia and these books are a pretty inexpensive way to keep her happy. The colors are great, pages are glossy, and the princess lessons (morals) in the stories are wholesome messages to support good behaving kids.
