About Ten Kisses for Sophie:

Another pitch-perfect story about an irrepressible, charming, and endearing two-year-old from the creator of Max & Ruby

There’s going to be a party! Sophie and her mother are making a very special treat: chocolate kisses with pistachio cream filling. Yum!

There will be nine guests plus Sophie, and they’ve made ten kisses. Just enough. But then the telephone rings and everything changes. . .

Irrepressible Sophie will charm readers once again in a story that goes straight to the heart of toddler concerns.

My Thoughts on Ten Kisses for Sophie:

Sophie and her mama make ten chocolate kisses for a birthday party they are hosting. Sophie wants to eat a kiss so much she can’t sleep. After all the guests get one, will there be a kiss left for Sophie?

I’m completely in love with this charming series of picture books from Rosemary Wells. Sophie is a delightful character that small children can easily see themselves in. Her concerns, reactions, and problem solving ideas are spot on for youngsters. My kids love these books too. They like putting the pieces of the story together and pointing them out to me.

Honestly, you can’t go wrong with a Rosemary Wells book. The text is simple and engaging. The artworks is sweet and charming.

    Rosemary Wells! I never read her Max and Ruby books but I still have Timothy Goes to School by her which I love. I like that Sophie’s reactions are like how a kid will react. Being able to see yourself or how you would do things in a book makes a story much more personal and fun.
