Jocelyn loved socks of all types; tall socks, short socks, bumpy socks, smooth socks, dark socks, and light socks. She disliked the boring, dull, and plain white socks. She loved wearing socks and wore them even in summer with her flip-flops on. She even wore them once in the bathtub. One day she received a package in the mail from her grandparents. The box was stuffed full of socks and Jocelyn could not even count them. When she hugged them, she noticed there were pictures on them. There were angry faces, sad faces, frustrated faces, happy faces, surprised faces, and calm faces. She ran upstairs, not sure which ones to wear, and she decided to wear what suited her mood.

Jocelyn's Box of Socks by Kristen Jackson is a delightful story that will teach children to understand their moods and feelings, and how to react to them. Tino Santanach has come up with some wonderful illustrations that add to the moods and feelings of Jocelyn and the story. The discovery that emotions can change quickly will help children realize how important it is to come to terms with their feelings and moods so that they can handle situations in life better, wherever they go. The Classroom Guide at the end of the story makes it a perfect story for classroom discussions and interactive activities. The story will also guide parents to help their children come to terms with their emotions and feelings in a positive way.
