While the overall message of this book is extremely positive, there is one scene that parents may find troubling. In the beginning of the book, Sophie is struggling to put together a puzzle when her sister walks up completing the puzzle quickly and insults Sophie's intelligence with some unkind words. Sophie's confidence plummets. While this scene is disappointing, the rest of the book demonstrates an important message on persevering through tasks and learning the concept of "yet". Parents may also choose to use the scene with Sophie and her sister as a discussion prompt to talk about how hurtful words and actions can be.
