"Sophia and Alex Clean the House" is one of eleven volumes in the "Sophia and Alex" series, written by Author Denise Bourgeois-Vance and illustrated by Artist Damon Danielson. The storyline follows Sophia and Alex as they work alongside other family members to perform chores around the house. The children learn that cleaning can be fun and rewarding when the family works together. After chores are done, the family rewards themselves by attending a baseball game and cheering for Sophia and Alex's older brother, Noah.
The 32-page illustrated book shows family members taking responsibility for the home in which they live. Children take pride in completing a task and gain a feeling of success seeing a job well done.
Each book in the "Sophia and Alex" series draws on storylines based on common events found in the life of an early learner. Children relate to the multi-cultural characters and learn the art of acceptance and inclusion in school and home settings. Through the use of dual text, the child can simultaneously learn to read in tagalog or English while better expressing themselves in each. Studies prove that bilingual children are more apt to excel in writing and reading in subsequent grades when given the tools at an early age.
At the time of this printing, over two dozen languages have been added to the series by the Children Bilingual Books' pool of translators. Parents and grandparents alike cherish the opportunity to connect with their child through reading in their native tongue.
