Sofia The First Book

This book was the first Sofia book released by Disney. Of course there are many more available now - all of them can be found at the Amazon link to the right.

The book is suggested for ages 3 and up and tells the story that was shown in the movie - how Sofia became a Princess. The illustrations really take center stage in this book - they are simply beautiful. It is a story that your child will want to hear again and again.

"In Sofia, we have a 'peer to peer princess,' a relatable girl experiencing the same social issues as our young viewers - learning how to fit in, making new friends, conquering new skills and building sibling relationships"

Meet Princess Sofia - A Little Princess With A Lot To Learn

Sofia and Clover
Sofia and Clover

Sofia started her life as a "commoner", living in the village with her mom, Miranda who owned a shoe store. Sofia's best friends were two little girls named Ruby and Jade. But, all of that changed one day when King Roland II came to the shoe store in search of some new slippers and met Sofia's mom.

King Roland and Miranda soon fell in love and got married. Sofia and her mother moved into the castle and Sofia became a princess. The movie and show follow young Sofia as she gets to know her new step-siblings and polishes her princess skills.

She also gets to know some of the woodland creatures thanks to a magical amulet that King Roland gave her which allows her to talk to animals. Sofia's best friend at the castle is Clover, a wise cracking rabbit who helps guide her in her new life.

Queen Miranda

Miranda is Sofia's mom. She used to be a shop keeper in the village, selling shoes. But, all of that changed when she married the king of Enchancia and became Queen Miranda!

Miranda is very gentle and kind. She makes sure that she is there for Sofia whenever she needs her. She is also an amazing step-mom to Amber and James. No wicked step-mother here!

Princess Amber and Prince James

Sofia's new step-siblings are twins named Amber and James.

Princess Amber is very pretty and wears beautiful dresses but she seems quite selfish. She gets jealous quite easily and can be very snobby. But, Amber has a good heart and I believe that she and Sofia will become good friends.

Prince James is the future King of Enchancia. He's a bit of troublemaker and loves to have fun. But, is is kind to Sofia and helps her out when she's in trouble.

King Roland II

Roland, as his title suggests, is the King of Enchancia. He is Amber and James' father. When Roland married Miranda he became Sofia's new step-dad.

King Roland gave Sofia the Amulet or Avalor as a gift to welcome her to the family. The amulet is what enables Sofia to talk to animals. Roland takes his role as father very seriously and he's a good dad to Amber, James and Sofia.

"Although Sofia will have plenty of pretty dresses and sparkly shoes, our stories will show Sofia, and our viewers, that what makes a real princess is what's inside, not what's outside."

Disney Princess Cameos

Some of the iconic Disney Princesses are set to make appearances on Sofia The First. Cinderella made an appearance in the movie and other Princesses will be seen on different episodes of the show. These more experienced Princesses will help Sofia as she learns what it takes to be a princess.

So far we have seen cameos from Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan, Snow White, Aurora and Belle. I'm sure there will be more to come. I know my daughter always looks forward to the princess episodes!

Royal Prep Academy

The Three Good Fairies
The Three Good Fairies

Part of Sofia's new life as a princess involves a new school: The Royal Prep Academy which is a school just for royalty. The three headmistresses will be familiar to Disney fans because the school is run by the three good fairies from Sleeping Beauty. Flora, Fauna and Merryweather will help teach Sofia all she needs to know to be a princess.

"By setting our story in the classic Disney world we're able to involve some longtime fan favorites," notes Sofia creator Craig Gerber. "The fairy godmothers are the headmistresses at Royal Prep Academy, where they will teach Sofia and the children of other royals from all around the world."

"Sofia is excited about her new home, new school and new blended family, but she is also in shock. She has a lot of adjusting to do and young viewers will really relate.

It's our hope they will take away Sofia's life lessons and apply them to their own lives."

~Craig Gerber, Sofia creator
