My second grade class went wild over I Lost My Sock and If You See the Moon. I always let the kids take a picture walk first when I bring them new books. It's hard to get the attention of seven and eight-year-olds. They were immediately involved with the pictures and couldn't wait to read. To me, this is the sign of a great book-when kids become so engaged, they don't even realize they're learning. After we read the books, they were very animated and couldn't stop talking about them. I downloaded the glossaries beforehand, so when they asked about a word, I was prepared. When the bell rang, we went to the technology center to play Sock Detective and Moon Toss. They were cracking up. We had a ball. Thank you, Wocto!

If You See the Moon was interesting. I loved it. I was amazed at the way the author imagined an ancient culture and translated it for kids to enjoy. This book gives life to dreams in a very entertaining way.
