If you love rhyming books then I have the perfect book for your home library! I Lost My Sock! A Matching Mystery by P.J. Roberts, features a Fox who lost his sock and his friend Ox helping him find it. This sing-song story is accented by the geometric shaped illustrations by Elio. This is both a visual and auditory pleaser. The adorable tale really resonated with my 1 year old who is forever taking his socks off and losing them. He loves bringing us his socks or asking where they went so this was a fun read for him!
“I lost my sock!” says Fox. “Have you seen it?” So begins Ox’s ridiculous attempts to help Fox find his missing sock. He presents each new option just before the page turn so the reader has a moment to decide for him or herself whether Ox has, in fact, found Fox’s sock. At its heart, I Lost My Sock! is the story of a funny misunderstanding between friends. But it’s also about pattern, color, and shape recognition; comparing and contrasting; and object identification. Mastery of these skills enriches a child’s vocabulary, prepares him to understand letters and numbers, and helps him gain a better sense of the world around him. Elio’s bold, geometric character designs further reinforce the early math concepts hinted at in this book.
