What happens when the bossiest cousin ever comes to visit for the weekend? This classic picture book about sharing and accepting others is a funny and realistic look at handling a friend or family member who isn’t so good at sharing.Wendell was spending the weekend at Sophie’s house. Playing house, Wendell was the father, the mother, and the children; Sophie was the dog. Playing bakery, Wendell was the baker; Sophie got to be the sweet roll. But when Wendell gave her a new hairdo with shaving cream, it was the last straw, and Sophie made up a game that left Wendell speechless for a time–and won the day for friendship.Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, Kitten’s First Full Moon, and Chrysanthemum, this classic picture book is a hilarious read-aloud (The Bulletin).Whether shared at home or in the classroom, this picture book for ages 3-7 will make kids laugh in recognition.
A little endearing and funny, but I don't love that Wendell acts so terribly.
