Duck has lost his new blue socks. Have you seen them?
What I thought: I really like this story. We have a problem to be solved. That's a great set-up. I like the rhyming...it's like a tribute to Dr. Seuss, but manageable. The illustrations are nice--muted colors and good use of white space.
Since writing the above, I've used this book in storytime (duck theme) and I loved it! I think next year instead of doing a Dr. Seuss storytime, I'll do a rhyming storytime in honor of him and use Have You Seen My New Blue Socks?
What is it with ducks & socks? Pair with Duck Sock Hop for a duck-tastic, sock-tastic storytime. Pair with I Want My Hat Back for a lost & found storytime.
Mollie over at What Happens in Storytime... has turned this book into a flannel board. I think I might follow suit.
Storytime Themes: Animals, Ducks, Socks, Lost & Found, Rhyming
