Have You Seen My New Blue Socks? Hardcover – March 5, 2013
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

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.

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 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.
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.
