Book Review | Sock n Boots

Author: D.K. Smith

About the Book:

Sock n Boots are best friends and the stars of the “Sock n Boots” book series. They are “the two most loveable pieces of footwear around”. The Sock n Boots characters and stories were created to foster a love of reading at a young age and to teach young children valuable life lessons. The stories stimulate positive thinking, while building a bond between parents and children, as well as teachers and students.

The goal of the books is to transform story time into an interactive bonding time.

Each Sock n Boots story begins with a question. Then through the antics of the characters, a lesson is taught that answers the question. Once the story is finished the question is posed again which opens the door for additional discussion and interaction.

We hope that children, as well as adults, grow to love the Sock and Boots characters and the stories they tell. A love of reading starts at a young age and Sock n Boots are on a mission to make sure that children associate fun with reading, and learn valuable life lessons along the way.

My Review:

Who knew that footwear could be so darn adorable……Sock and his friend Boots are a cute duo who have lots of fun adventures together in this entertaining children’s picture book compilation. In this collection of stories, my young children were delighted to read three popular Sock ‘n Boots tales including Share, Afraid of the Dark and Play it Safe. My three year old son has been having a difficult time falling asleep in his bed because he is afraid of “monsters”. Therefore, Afraid of the Dark was the perfect story to help validate his fears and help him understand that his bed is actually a safe place to be while he is asleep. He has requested that I read this story almost every single night before bedtime and I definitely notice a difference in his confidence when the lights go out. As a mom, I also appreciate that each of these stories teaches a life lesson that is easy for young children to relate to and understand. The illustrations are charming and you can almost believe that “Sock” and “Boots” are actually real characters…..they are so sweet!
