“I was intrigued with how a bit of important history was weaved in such a creative and unique fashion. I thought it was one of the most beautifully written, entertaining, and substantial children’s books I have had the pleasure of reading. This book shows history in a way that will plant the seed for learning and encourage kids to expand their minds with creativity.”


The SockKids – Solving The Mystery Of Your Missing Socks!
Where do our missing socks go?
Readers find out in our children’s series, “The Sockkids”. We follow the Socker family through many adventures; from encountering the slobbery mouth of the family dog to meeting Santa as he comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve to helping a fireman save a baby to the most shy Socker going to the school dance for the first time.  Thanks to the time-travel opportunities afforded by the spin cycle of the washer, they learn about some of the most important humans in the world.

Great Gift and Delightful Read for the Whole Family
What a lovely and encouraging present – at the same time teaching children about US history through this first book in a series.  Everyone loves the delightful illustrations by Sugar Snail Illustrations.
Children two and up and their parents will be drawn to the diversity of the family and the universal and timeless lessons they teach: don’t be afraid of new experiences; treat others as you would like to be treated, and of course, beware of the spin cycle!
