It isn't until she discovers something called a bookmobile and other new treasures that all is right with Sophie's world.

Kathleen M. Jacobs' latest release comes with rave reviews from young readers and their parents, such as the following from Julia, age 10, "Sophie & the Bookmobile was fun to read! Sophie has to be brave to live without friends or a library when she moves to a small town in West Virginia. But she finds all the things she loves in the Bookmobile! I love that Sophie knows that books are awesome and that she loves West Virginia as much as I do."

Julia's mother, Anna, also had this to say of Sophie & the Bookmobile, "I love when my daughter, Julia, can recognize herself in the pages of books, and Jacobs is able to capture both the trials and splendors of childhood perfectly. Plus, any book that confirms that reading is both essential and the best thing ever is the kind of book I want in my daughter's hands!"
