Overview

A Weekend with Wendell by Kevin Henkes

Wendell was spending the weekend at Sophie's house. Playing house, Wendell was the mother, the father, and the children; Sophie was the dog. Playing bakery, Wendell was the baker; Sophie got to be the sweet roll. Wendell shone his flashlight in Sophie's eyes when she tried to sleep. But when he gave her a new hairdo with shaving cream, it was the last straw, and Sophie made up a game that left Wendell speechless for a time -- and won the day for friendship.

Sophie does not enjoy energetic assertive Wendell's weekend visit until the very end, when she learns to assert herself and finds out Wendell can be fun to play with after all. Very cute. Sophie and Wendell mice. The pictures are very nice detailed colored pen drawings. Excellent book for the shyer student who might feel that the more boisterous students pass them by. It could be used to start a class discussion about ways to play/work with others, especially if you have students who take control and run over others. Fun enjoyable book to read to first grade or for second graders to read. All the Kevin Henkes books are loved at my school.
