Brief synopsis (from worldcat.org)
Sophia tries varied techniques to get the giraffe she wants more than anything in this story about the nuances of negotiation. Sophia has one true desire for her birthday. But she has Four Big Problems in the way: Mom, Dad, Uncle Conrad… and Grand-mama. Will her presentations, proposals, and pie charts convince them otherwise? Turns out, all it takes is one word.

Activities and Resources:
Persuasive Writing lesson
Teachers – This a great book to teach kids about the importance of considering audience in speaking or writing. For older students, analyze Sophia’s proposals and identify the features and how they match up with her target audience. Think of another profession and write a proposal for Sophia’s giraffe that fits that person.
Vocabulary – choose another concept (such as “too many words” in the book) and find new ways to say it.
Why I like this book:
Kids love to learn big words, and this story has a few impressive ones! Sophia, a precocious child, is quite charming and earnest in the pursuit of her One True Desire. The story is lots of fun, full of spunk, and features great illustrations of a diverse cast of characters. This book choice is perfect for all those kids who are putting in their requests at this time of year.
