Miss Jennifer's Picture Book Parade Review for July: Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth

Miss Jennifer's Picture Book Parade 
Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth
JE Kohuth (New Picture Books Shelf)

Grab your socks, grab any pair, and be dazzled by the music as you dance on air!  In this darling tale, you will meet some very vivacious and groovy feathered friends who grab their snazzy socks and dash off to a weekly sock hop.

Watch as these fowl boogie, jam, and dance in their knitted attire as much as they desire. Suddenly, an eccentric din breaks loose. Pastries scatter, juice splatters, chic socks rip, and the music comes to a screeching halt as the ducks show off their cool moves.

What's a jazzy duck to do when total dance chaos ensues? Read Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth to find out.

This story can be used to help young children learn colors, recognize patterns such as shapes, and  understand texture discrimination (lacy, ruffled socks etc.). I promise that it will totally "quack" you up with its hip color scheme and imaginative text.
