Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth
The ducks are ready to slip on their socks and have a dance party! Duck Sock Hop is a fun read aloud, with colorful illustrations and a tongue-twisting text. The duck party doesn’t end until the socks begin to fall apart, which simply means it’s time to buy new socks. This book has many opportunities to talk about fun concepts, such as rhyming words, counting ducks and identifying shapes and patterns on their socks.
While reading it one-on-one, point out the colors and patterns in the socks and ask which ones your child likes best. It may even inspire you to slip on a pair of fuzzy socks, turn on the music and have your own sock hop. Singing and playing are both great ways to practice vocabulary and get your child ready to read.
