Do you read college textbooks? Well Sophie Simon does. If you want to hear about a 3rd grade girl who does, then you should read Sophie Simon Solves Them All by Lisa Graff.

To begin with, this story is about a girl who is always doing things and studying things like a college student. Sophie is so smart that kids are always asking her to help them solve their problems. The funniest part is when Sophie is trying to help a boy named Owen solve his problem. To solve his problem Sophie makes Lenny the Ring Tailed Lemur ruin Owen’s birthday pool party so Owen’s mom, Mrs. Luu will get him a rabbit. I laughed hard on this page. There are a couple other parts like this in this great book.

In addition, I enjoyed this book because I like reading about girls that are the same age as me. Sophie is in 3rd grade just like me. I will always remember 3rd grade because I learned multiplication and division. Both are hard but I still enjoy them. Also Sophie has some of the same interests as me. One of them is reading. I remember when I first learned how to read in Kindergarten. After that I would read for hours every day! I knew even then that I would love to read.

In conclusion, this book is perfect for boys and girls ages seven to ten. I also think this is a great book for a teacher to read to her kids. You should find it at your library today!
