Christmas Socks by Michael Verrett is an adorable story with the Christmas season as the backdrop. Suzy Q is a fussy and rude girl. For her, everything has to be her way and this Christmas she expects a lot of gifts. But then what happens on Christmas Day is not what she had expected. She has only one gift, a small gift wrapped box which contains a pair of socks. She hates those socks and they don't fit her. She throws them off and when she wants them back, she finds the socks going from her dog Jack to a cat to a duck and then a mouse. Her chase finally takes her to her neighbor Philip's house. The story has a beautiful message for readers and captures the essence of Christmas nicely.
The book is bright and colorful and the illustrations convey the concept with clarity. The pictures also breathe life and movement into the story and characters. The colors of Christmas run through the pictures, making them vibrant and festive. It's a good bedtime storybook for children and is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries; especially during the Christmas season. Readers can relate to the behavior of Suzy and Philip. The rest of the characters in the story are also interesting. Books that convey a message are perfect for children as it makes it easy for them to understand the concept clearly.
