“Sophie’s Squash” by Pat Zietlow Miller. (Book Review)

When you hope your child will LOVE vegetables you may need to be careful what you wish for! Sophie never met a squash she didn’t like. In fact, she loves one particular squash so much that she draws a face on her and names her Bernice. She hugs her, kisses her, takes her everywhere, tucks her into bed at night. Mommy and Daddy try to convince Sophie to eat her squash before it gets mushy and rots but Sophie of course will not eat Bernice. After some good advice from a farmer, she tucks Bernice in for a dirt nap in the front yard. When spring comes, Sophie realizes Bernice has grown and become a squash plant! This is an adorable, funny and creative story about childhood imagination, friendship and the incorrect but insanely cute way to love your  veggies! The illustrations are beautiful and quirky, ink and watercolor sketches, drawn with a lot of great detail and spunk!
