Where’s My Sock? #PPBF

Hi Friends! Happy Friday! Today is special and I have a special treat. See why.

Where's My Sock book cover_Title : Where’s My Sock?

Author / Illustrator :  Joyce Dunbar/ Sanja Rescek

Publishing info : Scholastic Books, 2006, fiction

Ages : Grades PreK – 3

Resources : Have your child count the socks on the fold out. With your pre K students go over the colors on the socks hanging on the line on the fold out. Ask if they ever lost a sock and lead a discussion in this area.

Themes : Relationships, Educational, Feelings, Humor

First Three Sentences : Pippin was mad. Pippin was really mad. Pippin was as mad as can be!

Summary From Amazon : “ Pippin is as mad as can be. “I can’t find my other sock!” he exclaims. “My yellow sock with clocks, just like the one I am wearing!” Where do those maddening missing socks go? Pippin is determined to find out. Together with his friend Tog, he embarks on the greatest sock search ever.

Laundry baskets! Wastebaskets! Fruit baskets? No drawer is left unturned. From a mountaintop of socks, through a maze of mismatched knits, to a gatefold clothesline showcasing cheerful argyles, stripes, and dots, WHERE’S MY SOCK? bursts with colorful footwear for kids to look for, count, and pair. “

Why I love it : I picked this book out after seeing Debbie Ridpath Ohi ‘s Where are my Books? I put it on hold at my local library and found it the best of the week. Because that is what I do. I read what I hope to write. “Where’s My Sock?” turned out to be surprising! One of the main characters is a sock with clocks! And you know clocks are one of my favorite things.  Just look at what I have on Pinterest!! And we all know my book “Annie’s Special Day” is all about time and clocks. this book is charming and has a sweet twist at the end, just like my book. So there is a lot to love.

      AaWW! So true though! This cute picture book is one for the pre school to second grade reader for sure. Although for those of us who like reading picture books it is full of fun. 🙂

      Thanks, Joanna! Openings are meant to lure us in and those hooks that do so successfully are what make these picture books winners. (As you well know!) 🙂
