Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-A small green duck has lost his new blue socks. He looks for them in his toy box and consults his friends the fox and the ox. He does not find them among other socks on the rocks, but his peacock friends help him find them. The short, repetitive rhyming sentences are a good fit for beginning readers, and the large trim size allows plenty of space for the watercolor and pencil illustrations to provide clues to solve the humorous mystery. This is a whimsical delight for children whose parents clamor for phonics-based books.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

A little green duck is as blue as the favorite pair of socks he is missing. Where could they have gone? On his hunt the duck meets a fox who suggests asking the ox. The ox tells him to look down on the rocks, but all he sees there are peacocks. This very simple rhyming picture book would work just as well as an easy reader—with much better artwork than often seen in that format. Illustrator Ruzzier has fun with the idea (when the duck is tossing stuff from his box as he tries to locate the socks, he comes up with everything from one die to a pair of underpants), and the characters, simply drawn in ink and watercolor, all have their own personalities. The ending won’t be a surprise to the eagle-eyed, but those who guess where the socks are will enjoy their superiority over Duck. Just one quibble: the key line, which has a little peacock showing the socks to Duck, sounds like Yoda-speak, and kids may trip on it. Otherwise, good fun. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper

I read and reread this book to 31/2 yr old grandson. He loves listening and he is happy to point to the tiny glimpse of the new blue sock as the littlest peacock discovers it.
Yes I would recommend this for children 3-6 and their adults. It s a charming story with a plot line to which we adults can relate.

I have mixed feelings about this book. I love the story line and the fun surprise at the end. The pictures are sweet but I wish the colors were brighter.
I like the rhyme and will enjoy reading this book to children. However I usually expect more originality from Eve Bunting. There fore I was only able to give this cute little book 4 stars.

I remember reading "Are You My Mother?" as a child. This book is almost the same thing, but with socks instead. The duckling can't find his socks, and goes through the story searching for them. In the end he realizes he had them on the whole time. The pictures are cute, but overall it was kind of boring. No moral to this story, nothing to really discuss after reading it. My 3 year old niece was underwhelmed.

Eve Bunting never fails to please. Her simple word choice and topic are perfect for reading aloud to little ones. If you have ever misplaced anything, like a sock, you will delight in the story ending!

I borrowed this book from the library. My 22 month old is completely obsessed with this book. It is perfect for her age. I have read it about 4 times per day for the past 30 days. I feel I need to buy the library a new copy now because I'm embarrassed about the condition now. It is a simple story for a kid with limited vocabulary. Really not for an older kid. My 5 and a half year old found it fun a few times but is definitely not nearly as interested as my almost 2 year old.

I love this book. I thought it was so cute as he cleaned out his toy box and saw the hilarious things flying out as he looked for his new socks. The whole story is so fun. I love Eve Bunting stories.
