Ever since she was four years old, Sophie has wanted to be a lady farmer. She has been collecting animals, and so far her menagerie consists of snails, centipedes, a white rabbit, a black cat, and a puppy named Puddle. Now Sophie is saving money in her piggy bank to buy her own farm, but when she adds it up she only has $12.60. She must think of ways to raise more funds!

Just curl up with the children and listen with them, you won’t want to miss a single word.
I have more or less written the same review for all of the sophie stories. I can't urge you enough to get them all. each and every one is sheer delight. Always read by good old Bernard Cribbins.
What a treasure Trove of listening delights in the entire series of Sophie Stories by the incomparable Dick King Smith, writer of children’s stories.
Each story when read brings you to such a happy feel good, wonderful conclusion of this special little girl Sophie, who is so determined, with hair that looks like she has been through a hedge row backwards. and her entire family including her beloved Octogenarian Aunt Al who lives in the Highlands of Scotland on a most desired farm!(with PONIES of course.)
You and your kiddiewinkies are in for a real treat when you listen to the wonderful heart warming stories, read by Bernard Cribbins who has that special voice that puts us all at ease.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Sophie knows she wants to be a lady farmer and she has a savings plan already! Sophie also is taking care of many animals and her approach to having more is just wonderful. Kids dream big and Sophie is no exception. She's out to conquer her obstacles and make this one a reality.
Listen in order:

Sophie, because she's portrayed as such a direct and honest character
we bought all the tapes for our boys years ago and wanted something more permanent for the next generation
