Sophia and Alex Visit Their Grandparents" is one of eleven volumes in the "Sophia and Alex" series, written by Author Denise Bourgeois-Vance and illustrated by Artist Damon Danielson. Sophia and Alex's family embark on a journey to see their grandparents far away. The children learn that traveling may consist of many modes of transportation such as airplanes, trains, and cars. They also see unique interactions between their parents and their parent's parents, along with relationships within their extended family.
The 32-page illustrated book shows the special relationship grandchildren have with their grandparents when compared to their own parents. They see the love that exists and the comfort gained from bonding with those who love them. The children realize that although separation can be difficult and sad, they still know their grandparents care for them wherever they may be.
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 Portuguese 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.
