|Children and teacher alike are tickled by the bouncing rhymes and comical drawings of I Lost My Sock. The clues are slyly embedded in the context. Children can relate to the hero's troubles and excitedly share their own past frustrations. This will be a well-worn favorite.

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!

I Lost My Sock is super funny. When the sock jumped, it reminded me of me jumping off a slide. I'm going to go sock hunting later to find all my lost socks. I will be like a detective.
I Lost My Sock is a wonderful, fanciful exploration of a practical problem, and the picture cues really support my six-year-old's emerging reading skills. He can even read it to his little brother. "Sock" is one my toddler's favorite words at the moment. Thanks so much!
