There is one thing Sophia wants and 4 people she must go through to get it. She wants a giraffe and she has to get permission from her family member to get one. She drafts many proposals but she is always being told they are too wordy. This book teaches many big vocabulary words. So many that there is a glossary in the back of the book.
The ending is not very realistic but the moral of the story is. Sometimes you just need to get right to the important part and not try to impress people with all the big words you know. ( )

Sophia really wants a giraffe for her birthday. She pitches the idea to each adult in her family, using the feedback from each one to adapt her next presentation (they all say she uses too many words and NO). It has wonderful vocabulary and nice idea for persuasive writing. ( )
