Sock n' Boots Review and Giveaway!


















Hey Neighbors,

I thought this would be a great day out here At the Fence to share the book Sock n' Boots Share by D. K. Smith and illustrated by Lorena Isabel. I have to be honest, I am so leery of new books. If you haven't noticed yet, I am not into being hip and cool. I really prefer basic and innocent for children. I was really impressed with Sock n' Boots. Many times to teach lessons the main character does something wrong, gets in trouble and then learns their lesson. How refreshing to have two cute, little characters, Sock a gym sock and Boots a combat boot, who are pleasantly learning a lesson together. Sock n' Boots teaches a lesson on sharing without being too cool or too preachy. They just teach by example and show the benefits of sharing.



For the remainder of the month of August we will be hosting a 5 book giveaway. Tomorrow we will be posting a digital version of "Sock n Boots-Share" at www.socknboots.com. In order to enter, a person just needs to read the digital version of the book and post a review on Amazon.com.

The 5 most interesting reviews will win an actual copy of the book.

Sock n' Boots is definitely worth sharing At the Fence, and anyone who has a chance should stop by and read the book and enter the contest. But, don;t forget to enter here as you can also receive a copy here.

Sock n' Boots is designed for you to share time with your child/children. It starts out with a question and when you are through it asks the question again to open discussion between you and your child about sharing. The pictures are cute and colorful and there are more books coming in the series, so keep your eyes posted.

One winner will be sent their own copy of Sock n' Boots Share.

Mandatory Entry:Visit the Sock n' Boots website and then in a comment let me know which character you find the cutest. You do not have to be a blogger to enter, but you must leave a valid email where you can be reached should you win. This giveaway will end 8/31 at 11:59 pm CST. The winner will be chosen using random.org and will be notified by email. The winner will have 48 hours to respond.
