Item description for Sophie and Sam: When to Say "Yes" and When to Say "No" by Tori Cloud & Becky Valentine...

In a series of short stories, two mice, Sophie and Sam, and their animal friends learn about lying, sharing, whining, respecting others, cleaning up, bullies, following rules, saying please and thank you, arguing, and talking to God.

Publishers Description

Help your child learn some of life's most important lessons!

Sharing - yes. Whining - no. Telling the truth and cleaning up - yes. Arguing and not following the rules - no.

Seems simple enough, but as a kid it may be unclear when they know the right thing to do is not necessarily the most comfortable to express. Tied to the million-plus selling book, Boundaries, from Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, Tori Cloud helps children learn at an early age the value of setting and keeping boundaries to be safe and happy.

Boundary lessons include:

  • Sharing
  • Truthfulness
  • Bullies
  • Cleaning Up
  • Strangers
  • Respect
  • Arguing
  • Obedience
  • Thankfulness

Reviews - What do customers think about Sophie and Sam: When to Say "Yes" and When to Say "No"?

Great collection of topics, but too simplistic solutions  Jun 19, 2007
Sophie and Sam is written by Tori Cloud and based on her husband's million-plus-selling book, Boundaries (written by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend).

Sophie and Sam are siblings learning when to say "Yes" and when to say "No." The book is divided into several stories following these two mice and their friends. Told in rhyming verse, all the stories are easily relatable to children. Bible verses are given at the end of each chapter to reinforce the lessons learned. Here is a list of the chapters:

Say YES to Respect
Say NO to Arguing
Say YES to Thanking God
Say YES to Telling the Truth
Say YES to Sharing
Say NO to Whining
Say YES to Clean-up
Say NO to Meanies
Say YES to Following the Rules
Say YES to Manners

The illustrations by Becky Valentine are adorable. The characters are personal and emotion-filled. The colors are mostly pastel.

What I Like: Seldom does one book cover so many important topics! I like following the same characters as they encounter different situations. I also like that the stories are short, perfect for early readers or quick reminders in the middle of the day. My daughter loves this book; she will have me read several stories in one sitting.

What I Dislike: The rhyming is not perfect. Some spots are stretched or disjointed. Also, the conclusions come quickly. The author does a great job setting up the problem, but ends it in "Brady Bunch" fashion: everything tied up with very little explanation of why or how. I know we're reading about mice, but I would prefer a more realistic ending to some of the stories.

Overall Rating: Good.

Tanya -- Christian Childrens Book Review (CCBReview-dot-blogspot)
Sophie & Sam  Jun 10, 2007
This is such a good book! My friend borrowed my copy and then purchased one for her little girl. Very well put together!
Great resource for the younger reader!  Apr 26, 2007
Wow, what a fun book for children. Sophie and Sam are mice and they live out some incredible life lessons in this book dealing with the issues of living as children of the light. Cloud and Townsend weave in biblical principles and the corresponding Scriptural reference for each story in a fun and easy-to-understand manner for children. The book has ten stories dealing with issues such as telling the truth, sharing, arguing, and showing respect for other people. The book is wonderfully illustrated and easy enough to read for a younger elementary aged student. Great book for parents to read though with their children to make sure that the biblical principle is taught and caught! Highly recommended.
Great book  Jan 29, 2007
This book is adorable. There are so many great lessons in one book. It was like the author was looking at my kids and wrote this book:) It is Bible based, but not in your face religious. My kids love it. I am going to buy one for my son's 4K teacher for her classroom. The only reason why I am giving it 4 stars, is the binding is easily coming apart. I am hoping I just received a defected one and others are fine. I like it so much that I am paying to have it rebound (or buying a new one, if the cost is too much).
My granddaughter's favorite book  Apr 12, 2006
Sophie and Sam is direct, adorable, appropriate for children as young as two years old. The messages so concisely told in poetry and beautifully illustrated with little animals that children relate to, teaches them important lessons that parents have trouble teaching with their words alone. Our two year old granddaughter pulls Sophie and Sam off her book shelf more times than any other and runs with it to her daddy or mommy asking them to read it to her. She returns to tell them gleefully, "I am sharing like Sophie and Sam". We are so impressed with the facial expressions and the body language that Becky has drawn into her characters. Our granddaughter can relate as easily to Sophie and Sam and their friends as she can to her favorite little stuffed dolls that she carries around with her throughout the day. Sophie and Sam teach her how to behave in a loving fashion with her cousin so that she feels happy when they play together, and so do their parents.
