Sock 'n Boots Books Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

4:08 PM

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED*** 

As a parent, I view each day as a new day to learn. My children are constantly growing and always processing things...good and bad. This is why we love to go to the library and pick out books that re-enforce good values and character-building traits. Our library has a wealth of books that do just this and I have learned how to spot them. :)  One thing that we are CONSTANTLY trying to teach Hannah is how to share. She was the only child for 22 months of her life and never had to share with a sibling. Once Jacob came along, she realized very quickly that "her" things were no longer just hers. Oh, what an awful day that was for her. But, she is learning and we are right there to help her along the way.


I have discovered some cute books that have really helped us with our attempt to teach sharing and being a friend. The Sock 'n Boots books are pretty cute...perfect for this phase in our daughter's life where she is learning so much.

Sock 'n Boots are two friends (one is a sock and one is a boot...of course :)  ) that set out on adventures together. They are best friends and help each other out whenever they can. Boots is considered the older and smarter of the two and Sock is the young, mischievous character. Poor Sock finds himself in some pretty interesting situations because of his curiosity.
    
These cute books were written by D.K. Smith and to me, are wonderful. For this review I was sent a three-book compilation. Within this book are three Sock 'n Boots stories, each designed to address a different child-related issue. The three books are called:

Sock 'n Boots Share
Sock 'n Boots Afraid of the Dark
Sock 'n Boots Play It Safe

Our favorite of these three is the Sock 'n Boots Share. My daughter has brought this book to me to read every night before bed. She loves the part where the birds come and eat Sock's lunch...leaving him without his lunch. This gives Boots the opportunity to share. At the end of the story, I look at Hannah and ask her why we should share. She usually just smiles at me and I then fill in the blanks. I tell her because it makes people happy. Hopefully, she will take this principle and use it with her brother.
Sock 'n Boots Afraid of the Dark was a good story, but Hannah just learned to sleep without a night light and I don't like to remind her of how scary the dark can be. We still read this story but I edit it to fit my liking. She loves the pictures in this book...especially the first one where there are birds and owls sleeping. :) I should also mention that there are monsters mentioned in this story which is the other reason I don't particularly care for it.
Sock 'n Boots Play It Safe focuses on how children should only play where they know it is safe. Children are curious and as Sock finds out, can get into trouble quickly if they don't play in safe places. This was a really cute story and does teach some good principles. Hannah loves this story as well and again, the pictures are great!!!
This picture is from the Afraid of the Dark story
Sock 'n Boots Share

This Sock 'n Boots three-story compilation book can be purchased for only $11 and is a great investment. You will grow to love and relate to the characters and their fun adventures...so will your children!!

So, in my opinion...Sock 'n Boots Books are wonderful!! My daughter loves to read them daily and we always learn something new from them. I love the character building, safety focus, fun and learning that these books bring. Definitely a HUGE thumbs up from me!
