Sophie and Spot
by Amber Byers
What do you do when your heart’s biggest desire is to have a dog and all you see are dogs everywhere?
Meet Sophie, an optimistic third grader who wants a dog of her own more than anything. Sophie loves every dog she has ever met. From Maddie the math dog to Charlie at the fire station to the three dogs at her best friend Nadine’s house, dogs seem to be everywhere. Everywhere except at Sophie’s house. Will Sophie ever get a dog of her own?
As Sophie discovers, the journey of waiting is filled with ups, downs, trust, and a whole lot of patience.
