Sophie is an eight-year-old girl who lives with her mother, father, sister Emma, and pet bunny Floppy. Sophie doesn't always remember to do things she is supposed to do. You could say she is easily distracted and forgetful. Sophie's family doesn't believe her when she says she saw something, and when she forgot her math homework that she worked so hard to get finished, she began to get discouraged. Then at Sunday school, her teacher introduced her and her classmates to the story of Rhoda, and she began to feel confident in always telling the truth and remembering things.
