"The adventures of Sophie the sweater" (previously known as Gro Book) puts the child in charge of this captivating and moving story. The book can be read, or listened to, in 24 different ways, and has an underlying eco-educational theme. Get to know Sophie - a sweater that is longing for someone to need and love her. Along the way, the reader decides the direction of story, which affects Sophie’s shape, use, and mood!
Sophie the sweater is feeling abandoned on her hanger in a clothing store. Nobody seems to want to take her home. One day a certain someone comes in to the store and the great adventure begins. Sophie goes on lots of adventures - even scary ones - where she is created into new things such as a vest, a pair of pants, and even a bird’s nest, just to mention a few. The underlying theme of the book is ”consumption and reuse”. By reading the story of Sophie the sweater we hope to inspire you and your child to take extra good care of the many things that are already around you. Get inspired and use our creative tips on how you can be creative and reuse stuff at home.

Ratings and Reviews
My son likes this book because of all the different choices he gets to make. Some parts of the story are boring according to him ( 5 yrs old). It seems very creative to me.
My family loves this book. We have bought a couple of other book apps in the past but this one is far better than all of them. Meaningful and educational story together with really nice illustrations.
Adorable story and important message!
My two kids (4 and 7) loves this adorable collection of stories about Sophie the sweater! A big bonus is that it teaches them the concepts of consumption and reuse, which I have not been very good in doing myself to be honest.
