Sophie learns her mother is expecting a baby. The new baby arrives, gets all the attention and Sophie is ignored. She is left alone in the snow, crying because her parents are preoccupied with the new arrival. Her Daddy comes out and scoops her up, but simply tells her that the world has changed and Sophie can just lump it.
Harsh stuff, huh?
Indeed it is. I'm ambivalent about this book because all that happens is that Sophie has to put up with a sibling and learns to live with being less important than she was. How this is supposed to reassure children expecting a sibling I can't imagine!
