If I had a nickel for every time I was interrupted during storytime so a kiddo could tell me that he or she got something new (I got new shoes!) I could be a slightly not-so-broke blogger. new socks not only embraces the new appeal, it celebrates it! The illustrations are bold and simple and the read aloud effect has kiddo appeal. I adore new socks.
To go along with the book, have your kiddo create their own happy, chickie with new socks!

Once dry, use a glue stick to assemble and stick all the pieces onto their "cover page" and viola! They too now have new socks!
