As a little girl grows, so do the wheels that keep her moving.
When Sophie is born, her parents and brother take her out in a bouncy buggy. At first, Sophie stays curled up all cozy inside, but soon she can sit up and smile at the world. Before you know it, she's moved up to a stroller and then to a tricycle.
With each new set of wheels, Sophie discovers new things to see and new ways to see them. Low-riding strollers are great for bug-spotting. Snowbound wagons are no match for zippy sleds. Eventually, big girl Sophie is riding a bike on her own, all the way around the corner and then back to her cheering family.
The talented team that brought you Leo's Tree returns with this rhythmic tale of Leo's little sister. Children will delight in Sophie's freewheeling antics as captured by Debora Pearson's catchy cadence. Nora Hilb's delightful illustrations keep the story rolling along.

PreS—In this companion volume to the author's Leo's Tree (Annick, 2004), readers meet Leo's little sister. The story begins when Sophie is a baby and her mother pushes her in her baby buggy, and it concludes with her ultimate transformation into a big girl riding her bike with training wheels. In between she discovers her world in a stroller, in a wagon, in a grocery cart, and on a tricycle. The language is descriptive—"Squoosh! Scrunch!/Sophie's stuck/Sometimes wheels/Won't go in snow." The text is accompanied by simple, soft-washed watercolor illustrations that show the child in various stages and seasons. This satisfying, peaceful title celebrates a youngster's growth from dependency on others to taking a big trip around the block on her own.—Linda Zeilstra Sawyer, Skokie Public Library, IL
