Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth, illustrated by Jane Porter. In bouncy dancey, rhyming text, a flock of multicolored ducks throw a sock hop! First they dig through their big box of socks, finding matched pairs in many colors and patterns. Then the duck musicians start the tunes with their banjo, accordion, and harmonica. Soon the whole flock is boogying, line-dancing, and rocking out! They snack and drink (never mind the crumbs and spills!), and dance the night away until their feathers droop and their socks wear out. Happy and tired, the ducks head home to sleep at last. But it won’t be long before they’re back at the Duck Sock Shop, looking for new footwear and dreaming about the next Duck Sock Hop! Porter’s illustrations are a perfect match for Kohuth’s bouncy text, full of bright colors and intricate patterns on the ducks and their socks. We love this book so much, we added it to our “Side By Side” read-along collection! Look for specially labeled copies at the library, and you’ll find suggestions inside for related activities to try with your little one. See this book listed in our catalog
