Boots, Shoes & Socks

What comes in pairs? Boots, shoes, and socks, skis, skates, and mittens said our Thursday Storytimers! This week we read Holly's Red Boots by Francesca Chessa about a little girl who searches for her boots so she could go out to play in the snow. We read two books about missing socks: Lizette's Green Sock by Catharina Valckx and Have You Seen My New Blue Socks? by Eve Bunting. Next came an old favorite of mine - Socks for Supper by Jack Kent, which tells the story of an old couple who trades knitted socks for milk and cheese. We finished Storytime with an all-time favorite, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin. Everyone knows this story, and some listeners even sang along!

We had fun with our craft - sock puppets! Yarn, felt, pompoms, googly eyes, and markers all helped to make each puppet unique. It was fun making our puppets dance and talk!
