The Sockkids meet Lincoln review and Giveaway!

The SockKids Meet Lincoln

Do you frequently wonder how you end up with a pile of odd socks? My mother was always convinced the washing machine ate them. After reading The Sock kids meet Lincoln I am realizing that she may have been on to something!
In the Sock Kids Series the washing machine is actually a time machine for clothing!

A colorful family of socks, the Sockers, have plenty of adventures even without the washing machine. In this title, a spin cycle take them to meet President Lincoln. Authors Michael John Sullivan and Susan Petrone do a great job at keeping the story fun and educational for younger history readers. The CGI illustrations by Sugar Snail brings each character to life -humans and socks!

I liked that the series provided the opportunity to introduce our preschooler to history in a humorous way. Even I had a giggle about the thought of Abraham Lincoln getting up to make his big speech wearing mismatched socks! We will definitely be on the look at for more books in this cute series.
