Sophie's Squash by Pat Zietlow Miller, Anne Wilsdorf

On a trip to the farmers' market with her parents, Sophie chooses a squash, but instead of letting her mom cook it, she names it Bernice. From then on, Sophie brings Bernice everywhere, despite her parents' gentle warnings that Bernice will begin to rot. As winter nears, Sophie does start to notice changes.... What's a girl to do when the squash she loves is in trouble?

The recipient of four starred reviews, an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor, and a Charlotte Zolotow Honor, Sophie's Squash will be a fresh addition to any collection of autumn books.

I think this book is great for any time of year. The illustrations are a nice shade for the book. They drag you into the story because you can see how much Sophie cares for Bernice (the squash). :) The story line is cute, and the ending is just wonderful! I felt bad when Bernice started to get a bit rotten, but it all worked out. ;) I love the message of the book, that you can really love and care for anything and it will grow. My whole family enjoyed this story. :) *NOTE* I won a copy of this book in a drawing

I had to get this book for my daughter Sophie. It is a cute story that shows that you do not need the prettiest doll to love, for Sophie it is her squash that she adores. A good reminder to adults that our children's imagination is endless and a entertaining and cute story for our litytle ones. The illustrations are beautiful too.
