*comp close and winner informed*

SOCKS is a big hardback picture book for kids, full of silly sock related words and pictures guaranteed to make you laugh. It is ….

full of imagination and creativity and show s how you can take a simple shape (inthis case a sock) and make a whole jumble of words and images.

Socks

It has socks as clock markers, as a cockerels body, as Goldisocks hair!!, as a trumpet, as cats, as planes, even as a crocodiles jaw. Wonderfully funny and very clever. It is a delight to read aloud

SOCKYWOCKY-SNAP-SNAP!

Beware the sockodile

Especaiily when she flashes you

Her socking great big smile

On each page are a little boy and girl sharing in the socks adventures with wonderful expressions for your child to observe. A delightful and unusual book. Came with instructions on how to make a sock puppet so guess what we are doing today. Will be back to post a pic of it if we can find some googly eyes!!
