I was given the opportunity to read a new children's book called "Sock 'n Boots: Share" by D.K. Smith. This is the first book in a series of books that will focus on teaching kids some important life lessons. The main characters are Sock (yes, he is a sock) and Boots (yes, he is a boot). These may not be furry little animals, but Sydney recognized them immediately and kept pointing at Boots and saying "shoe." These characters are a little unusual, but they are recognizable to kids, which is always good.
The first page in the book is a note to readers that explains how parents should use the book to help teach their kids the lessons. Each book begins and ends with the same question. Sock 'n Boots answer the question during the book, and at the end you can ask your child the question and let them explain how Sock 'n Boots learned the lesson. The "Share" story was a simple story with very colorful pictures. It has a couple of short sentences on each page, so even younger kids like Sydney can pay attention.
I love all books that help teach kids lessons. As a parent, I like to know that Sydney enjoys reading, but also that she gets something out of it. I think this series does a good job with both of those. Keep a look at Sock 'n Boots' website for upcoming titles!
THREE lucky readers are going to recieve their own copy of Sock 'n Boots: Share!
