Time-Out for Sophie by Rosemary Wells

Testing! Testing! Sophie really wants to be helpful and good, but she just can't help testing the limits with her ever-patient mother, father, and grandma. She dumps her dinner on the floor, helps Dad fold the laundry into a neat pile and then topples it over, snatches her grandmother's glasses off her nose when she's trying to read. Then it's Time Out for Sophie. As adorable as she is naughty, Sophie is the quintessential two-year-old!
