My Dad Wears Orange Polka Dot Socks

Bright colored sheets just inside the tough book cover for certain set the climate for this superior book geared for children between the ages of 4 and 8. The primary character is a young boy who is urgently fretting over the class response to his peculiar family. He fears the day the children in his schoolroom are due to introduce their characterizations of their families. Much to his pleasure, he sees his family is not so odd after all. Parents and teachers will for certain find the yoga-loving dad with orange polka-dotted socks is surely to get the giggles rolling. The astonishing illustrations hold attention to the page. As youth, we are frequently captivated by other family’s doors and what lays on the far side of them. When we find that all the oddities and deviations live in everyone’s family, it makes it easier to accept our families and our place in them. This is an important life skill that would for certain help to ground little people at this age. Educators and caretakers may find this book valuable in social and family studies. Children are encouraged to individualize the book on the first page and create a list of their family and their personality traits on the last page – thus making this book more interactive."
