Almost everyone has felt anxiety and uncertainty over a friendship.
 
Sophie is looking forward to her first sleepover.
She is excited from the tops of her ears to the tips of her toes and has even made a list of all the things she wants to bring over to her best friend Olive's house. But, when she arrives, a bunny she's never seen before opens the door.
 
In this heartwarming tale of first sleepovers, furry animals, and friendship, Marisabina Russo asks the age-old question: can one bunny have two best friends?

Praise for Sophie Sleeps Over

"The colorful patterns and warm tones of the gouache illustrations provide a cozy feeling of security." - BCCB

"A charming, emotionally resonant exploration of the oh-so-important concept of "best friend."" - Kirkus Reviews

"Friendship bliss, anticipation, hurt feelings, homesickness—all are familiar to (human) kids and are all conveyed with respect and sensitivity." - The Horn Book

"Sensitive to the challenges of three-person friendships, the well-written text dramatizes Sophie’s emotions with perception and precision. Created with gouache paints, the illustrations make good use of white space and dark, shadowy grays as well as bright colors." - Booklist

"A great read-aloud and a gentle way to help children consider the idea of expanding their circles of friends." - School Library Journal
