Star "These upbeat stories about a spunky young girl are sure to have wide appeal. Kids will enjoy the format and characterization, while parents will appreciate the character-building lessons hidden in each episode." -- Story Time Secrets, February 6, 2016. Read the full review.

Star "Sofia is very likeable and her antics are sweet and humorous. The illustrations are bright, fun and very expressive. . . . There are a lot of Hispanic families in my community who speak Spanish, they often ask for bilingual books that their child can relate to. Sofia Martinez is a great series that I’m sure will gain a lot of popularity in urban libraries or libraries with Spanish speaking communities. I can’t wait to recommend this series to my little patrons!" -- Read With Mitch, January 26, 2016. Read the full review.

Star "This volume contains 3 different stories, each one with multiple chapters. They’re the perfect length for this age . . . . Overall, recommended. We need to see more diversity in our kids books (Sofia is Hispanic). Maybe I should rephrase that: we need to see our kids books more reflecting the real world – because the real world is diverse." -- Don't Read My Blog, November 11, 2015. Read the full review.

Star "Cute, bright illustrations accompany this chapter book that is best for children ages 5 to 7. I think that children will enjoy this book. -- I Read that Book, December 18, 2015. Read the full review.
