5.0 out of 5 stars A classic!, 29 April 2013
Our kids love this cd and know every song on it. Whenever we make popcorn, we have to listen to the popcorn track! A particular favourite is seven ate nine.

We bought this as a birthday present for soon to be six year old who came over and had fun listening to it with us. She was delighted.

Each page is beautiful. The illustrator is a master colourist and both my son and I got great pleasure admiring the pictures. I particularly like the way that the outline of Sophie changes colour as her anger subsides.

My son, who is four and a half, has an explosive temper, and this book helped him to find an alternative to shouting and hitting. Now, he takes himself off somewhere quiet when he's angry and comes back when he's calmed down, which makes life easier for everyone. I don't know if this book was the single cause of this turn-around, but it certainly seems to have contributed to it.
