Walking With Sophie by Adam Webb

It is Sophie's birthday and she plans to visit all her favorite places.  She starts at the ocean where she loves to gather seashells and watch the waves.  Her mother told her that every time a wave crashes on the shore, a mermaid is born (what a lovely thought!).

Next is the forest.  She loves the smells and sights there, and the fact that her father lets her ride on his shoulders, making her feel like a giant.  She next visits the bakery where she spends time with her grandmother, tasting all the sweet treats.  Finally, she finds her favorite place of all, her home with her family safe and sound there.

This book is sure to be a favorite.  The illustrations are stunning and the story is one that children will love to hear over and over.  At the end of the book, there is a surprise that will continue to amaze.  This book is recommended for the young and the young at heart.
