While in many picture books problems are solved quickly, Miller makes clear that it takes time, as well as reflection and effort, for Sophie to decide that she wants friends and to figure out how to make them. The character is shy, strongwilled, and resistant to change, qualities many children will relate to as they start school. --Booklist, Starred Review
