When we saw this book, we snatched it up for Christmas for our youngest. She really loves the book. We have been reading it every night. She sings the songs from the show when we get to the corresponding part in the book.
As for the book. It is illustrated wonderfully. The art looks great and very similar to the art in the TV Movie. The storyline is also a great adaptation of the TV Movie. It is much more brief than the movie as expected, but it hits all the major plot points perfectly. Fine details and extra scenes are excluded for brevity, but the story in the book doesn't feel like it is missing anything at all. It is the perfect length for a bedtime story and a good reading book for the 5 year old age range. It is done very well.
Sofia The First items are relatively scarce at the moment since the main TV Series hasn't come out yet, but this is a great first Sofia book for your Disney collection. Highly recommended.
QUICK UPDATE (01/08/2013):
Just a note about this item being under review by Amazon due to quality issues and negative reviews. Some of the reviews are saying the words are in wrong places or running off the page. Please note, all of these negative reviews are for the KINDLE EBOOK VERSION, not the HARDCOVER BOOK. My review was for the Hardcover Book and my copy is flawless, with great illustrations and a high quality dust jacket. So if you are concerned about buying the book, rest assured, it doesn't look like anyone has had any quality problems with the actual Hardcover book. Still highly recommended. We read it every night.
The book cover is a beautiful purple with stamped lettering on it and the dust jacket was of great quality (though not durable enough to last more than a few weeks of my toddler opening and closing and pulling on this book LOL). It was a great purchase and I have a feeling that we will be reading "Fia!" for years to come.
Please note that there are some versions of this book that include a CD with some songs on it, but this version from Amazon doesn't have that included. So just make sure you are getting the version you want.
