From the book:What can two pieces of footwear teach a child? Just about anything. A loveable little gym sock and a wise young combat boot take center stage in this fun filled children's book series. ***************

Sock 'n Boots Share is an adorable children's book that teaches children about sharing. The book begins with the question about why we should share. The story then explores that question by following the antics of Sock and Boots as they go off to play and have lunch in the park. By following along, your child will learn why sharing is so important.

I really love Sock 'n Boots. They're adorable and funny and will certainly engage your child in reading this fun picture book. The pictures are bright and colorful and make the book visually appealing to your child. Sock 'n Boots Share is one of a series of books offered by D. K. Smith that will teach children different life lessons. It encourages sharing between parent and child by asking the child what they have learned.

Newest review of Sock n Boots - Share


I always like to read Audrey's books before I read them to her (really I like playing with all her things, because, well it's just plain fun!). I loved this book! I thought the story, and the characters were so adorable, and I couldn't wait to share it with Audrey! Sure enough she loves it too! So much that it's her first pick before bed (and I have to read it over, and over again)! And as a mother I love that each book teaches a lesson, and that it's not too long. Also that it's colorful, and rhymes, which easily catches her attention!

Sock 'n Boots Share follows two best friends (the loveable and emotional little Sock and his pal the wise young Boot) as they set out for a day of fun at the park. When a flock of hungry birds flies in, the stage is set for a lesson on why sharing is such a good thing to do. The fun rhyming scheme and simple storytelling style make the book enjoyable and easy to follow.

The short story format and simple storytelling style of the Sock 'n Boots series makes it easy to teach age old yet valuable lessons to their children. The pictures along with the story spark an imaginative thought from children that read the book, especially when parents engage them in a discussion about the book.

Overall both me, and Audrey love this book! Although she may not be old enough to understand the lesson presented, completely. She still loves the colors, beautiful pictures, and rhyming. And I figure the more I read it, and explain the lesson to her the more she'll understand! We can't wait to read the next Sock 'n Boots book! I would recommend this book to anyone with children. It would also make a great gift, to kids that love to read (or love for their parents to read to them!). Sock 'n Boots Share retails for $12.00, and you can currently purchase it at LULU.com

Sock 'n Boots Share by D K Smith
This book was sent to me for review by the author, and it was a pleasure to look it over.It's a picture book for young children that has charming characters. It would appeal to those in the 1-4 age group.The book begins with a question, tells the story with a lesson about life, and ends with a question that leads into a discussion of what they just read and what it meant. It will also reinforce the lesson.In this story, Sock's lunch gets eaten by birds, so they "share".

The characters are cute, the message is important, and I'm sure you'll get some very interesting discussion in groups.This book would be good for a daycare center or anyplace that children gather.

You can buy a copy at Lulu.com. Visit the author's website at www.socknboots.com for info about additional books that will be published in this series.

The next one scheduled talks about being scared of the dark - and that was one of my biggest frights as child. I'm looking forward to reading that one, too!
