Kids' Picks

This Tuesday marks the first of the Kids' Picks carnival over at 5 Minutes for Books. Come and join in the fun every third Tuesday of each month.

Here at the Wandeca household, we're huge fans of Robert Munsch. And this month both kids have been reading and re-reading his books. But the official favorite is Smelly Socks. They love the humor in the story but they also love spending time looking at the pictures - you never know what you missed the first time (their words, not mine).

Tina's new socks are so wonderful she vows to wear them every day.

Tina loves her brand new socks so much, she's never, ever going to take them off! But when her wonderful socks start to get smelly and she still refuses to take them off, her friends have to take action.

Considering my 5yo wanted to wear the socks he wore yesterday and slept in last night, I think he'd love this! Thanks!

That book definitely looks like it holds some kid appeal. Cute! I'll keep an eye out for it.

Thanks!
