**I was provided a copy of the book by the publisher. I voluntarily read and reviewed it. All opinions are my own.**
I have lots of nieces so I try encouraging them to read more by reviewing and purchasing children’s books and middle grade books. They tell me that when they come over, it feels like they’re in a library. Best compliment ever! I recently dropped of two middle grade reads for the two older nieces. Here’s a children’s book I got a chance to take a peek at and it’s definitely a fun read!
Sock on the Loose is an imaginative story of what happens when a sock goes missing. When you only find one sock, rest assured the other side isn’t really lost so much as on an adventure. It’s out discovering what it likes and finding new friends. The adventures are fun and the illustrations are made memorable with its vivid colors. My nieces adored it, especially the sock’s visit to the watermelon cave. The story promotes identity and pushes kids to step out of their comfort zone by trying to find out new things they might like.
I was lucky enough to be a part of the promotional tour for the book’s release. My sock Sprightly and I went on a walk because it’s really beautiful around here this time of the year. Sprightly got a chance to hang out (heh) and admire the beautiful blossoms. Sprightly photobombed the one below. That’s what happens when a sock is on the loose!
