Description

★ 5 Stars from the Midwest Book Review – Nov 2010

The “two most loveable pieces of footwear around”, Sock and his best friend Boots are the stars of the "Sock n Boots" children’s book series and want to become best friends with children all over the world.

The Sock n Boots series was created to foster a love of reading at a young age and to teach children valuable life lessons while turning story time into an interactive bonding time. The stories stimulate positive thinking, while building a bond between parents and children, as well as teachers and students as the stories and the pictures are discussed.

Each Sock n Boots story begins with a question. Then through the antics of the characters, a lesson is taught that answers the question. Once the story is finished the question is posed again which opens the door for additional discussion and interaction.

The Sock n Boots-Adventures app for Ipad includes three stories filled with beautifully illustrated pictures that are full of detail and vibrant color.

About the characters

Sock is the younger and more mischievous of the pair. He is a playful and very emotional little guy. He is quick to look for fun but often finds trouble instead. It’s not uncommon to see him shed a tear or two when things get tough. His pal Boots always seems to be there to make him feel better and get him out of trouble.

The smartest little Boot you’ll ever get to know. He’s a little wiser than his younger friend Sock which makes them fit so well together. He’s all for fun but manages to keep a level head. Boots has a sweet tooth and can’t resist a nice big piece of chocolate cake. He is everything a best friend is supposed to be.
