I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
How old are your socks-with-no-matches? I had some no-match socks for years! This cute children’s book is about mismatched white socks. They had very practical names: Lefty and Righty. One day they decided that they wanted to go learn more about their town, Chicago.
Seeing the dinosaurs at the museum was a fun activity. But, what they were most excited about was going to the ballgame. They were big White Sox fans and planned to attend after they found two tickets in the laundry room. How will they get back to their home?
I liked this book and enjoyed the artwork of the hyperactive little sock friends. It was also nice that the author used rhyming. Children seem to read from “memory” if the rhymes are used.
