Sock 'n Boots Share by D K Smith
This book was sent to me for review by the author, and it was a pleasure to look it over.
It's a picture book for young children that has charming characters. It would appeal to those in the 1-4 age group.
The book begins with a question, tells the story with a lesson about life, and ends with a question that leads into a discussion of what they just read and what it meant. It will also reinforce the lesson.
In this story, Sock's lunch gets eaten by birds, so they "share".
The characters are cute, the message is important, and I'm sure you'll get some very interesting discussion in groups.
This book would be good for a daycare center or anyplace that children gather.
You can buy a copy at Lulu.com. Visit the author's website at www.socknboots.com for info about additional books that will be published in this series.
The next one scheduled talks about being scared of the dark - and that was one of my biggest frights as child. I'm looking forward to reading that one, too!
