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 wonderful conclusion of this special little girl Sophie,(She wants to be a Lady Farmer) 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 Cribbens who has that special voice that puts us all at ease. Just curl up with the children and listen with them, you won’t want to miss a single word.
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.
Aunt Al is Sophie's great-great aunt, and her favorite great-great aunt as well! Aunt Alice, most often called Aunt Al has a special fondness for Sophie and when it comes time to prepare her will Aunt Al takes special care of Sophie and her family.
A delightful story with animal issues (escaped bunny) and reminders to be nice (the scolding from Aunt Al) and even football injuries (thanks to Matt and Mark).
A quick listen and a great series. Try to listen in order:
Sophie Hits Six
Sophie Is Seven
I would definitely recommended this book. It is one of my little girl's favorite stories
Sophie of course.
The scene when Sophie goes to the potting shed and remembers when Aunt Al gave her Beano made me cry.
This was a wonderful, touching story. My daughter enjoyed listening to this story over and over again and I did too.
Yes, I already have. tI is sad and exciting and it is always good to read something again that you already know.
It is like the Longest Whale Song by Jacqueline Wilson as they are both sad but also lucky for the child.
I like Sophie best because she is the main character and believes in herself and gets to do so many things.
Sophie: she is unlucky, but lives to find luck, happiness and independence
Sophie is so determined and it shows that people can be both lucky and unlucky and that they can come through the unlucky periods of their lives and be stronger.
