why this book

At the beginning of the year, I bring to life many of Kevin Henkes books with an author study unit on Kevin Henkes. This book would be perfect for that unit. I love the messages the characters in Kevin Henkes books bring and this book would be wonderful to add to our classroom library collection!

Wendell was spending the weekend at Sophie's house. Playing house, Wendell was the mother, the father, and the children; Sophie was the dog. Playing bakery, Wendell was the baker; Sophie got to be the sweet roll. Wendell shone his flashlight in Sophie's eyes when she tried to sleep. But when he gave her a new hairdo with shaving cream, it was the last straw, and Sophie made up a game that left Wendell speechless for a time -- and won the day for friendship.
