New Socks by Bob Shea.
This cheery, clever little book features a chick who has gotten new orange socks. There is very little actual storyline here, but the joy of new sock is completely contagious. From sliding on wood floors to allowing a chick to be brave enough to slide down the big slide, these socks can do almost anything!
The graphic art is hip, fun and bright. The words are catchy and will rely on the reader to read them with enthusiasm. Though the book is short enough for even toddlers, I would think that kindergarteners on up will appreciate the quirky humor and imagination of this book.
Great to read aloud at any time, don’t save this one for your chicken or clothing storytimes, though it will work well there too.
