The SOCKKIDS Meet Lincoln
Where do our missing socks go?
Readers find out in our children’s series, The SOCKKIDS. We follow the Socker family through many adventures. They encounter the slobbery mouth of the family dog. The SOCKKIDS meet Santa as he comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve. They help a fireman save a baby.
Thanks to the time-travel opportunities afforded by the spin cycle of the washer, they learn about some of the most important humans in the world.
Children two and up and their parents will be drawn to the diversity of the family and the universal and timeless lessons they teach. Don’t be afraid of new experiences; treat others as you would like to be treated, and of course, beware of the spin cycle!
The Sock Kids Meet Lincoln is a very cute children’s book in which Stretch, the sock, travels back in time via washing machine to Gettysburg, PA, the site of Abraham Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address. Stretch is surprised to find himself next to a black colored sock on President Lincoln’s foot! When the President returns home to the White House, he is surprised to see a white sock and a black sock on his foot, though he laughs at how appropriate it is that he wear those on the day he is giving his speech.
The illustrations in this book are beautiful and the text is just right for reading to a young child. Though the message may be a little above their comprehension, it is a great starting point for a conversation about being friends no matter what your differences. I highly recommend this book and would love to read more of the series.
