The SOCKKIDS Meet Lincoln

The SockKids Meet Lincoln - Michael John Sullivan, Susan Petrone "The SockKids Meet Lincoln" is an amusing tale told from the point-of-view of socks! Meet the Socker family: Stretch (the tube sock), Rinse (his little sister), Rainbow (their mother), Parch (their father), and Grandpa Bleach. Find out how they deal with washing day and conditions such as the "fuzzies". And have you ever wondered what happens to those socks that disappear in the wash? Well, now you'll find out! During the spin cycle, they can slip through time and go to another time and place in the world. In this story, Stretch ends up on the foot of a man who turns out to be Abraham Lincoln and receives a history lesson following an encounter with a black sock.

The authors have come up with an original and fun way for children to learn about history. The illustrations by SugarSnail are bright and colorful, and imbue each of the socks with their own personality. Unfortunately, the dialog is a bit stilted and unnatural. I look forward to reading the further adventures of the Socker family.

I received this book for the purpose of providing an honest review.
