Sophia the Giraffe Review

I love books!  I think they are a great gift for young kids, babies, and parents to be!  Either the parents can read to their growing babies in-utero or they can read to their babies as they grow and learn once born.  Like I always say, you can never have too many books!
Mommy Moments with Abby's review of Sophie La Girafe Books:  We have all seen the little nursery toy, Sophie La Girafe.  Now they have a book series to go with their lovable character.  We were lucky enough to check out these books.  We received the four set of books: Counting, Colors, Sophie's Busy Day, and Peekaboo Sophie.  They were all centered around the toy's character Sophie.  
I enjoyed that as kids age they get to see one of their favorite toys in action in these books.  Plus, the books can help them as they grow.  They start out as quick stories for a little babies changing attention span, then develop into beginner number and color identification tools, then move into early reader books with fun stories about Sophie's Busy Day and, ever kids favorite game, Peekaboo.  This allows these books to stay with the kids from infancy until their Preschool/Kindergarten years giving them shelf stability for your kids home library.  
I loved that they helped reach all the ages I was reading to at the daycare.  The little toddlers loved the counting and colors and the preschoolers loved the stories making for a quieter and calmer story time in the daycare.
